I let all my LPs go a few years back. I had "Stand Up" and "This Was".
I have the MP3s now. At my age I can't tell the difference between MP3s at high res and the audiophile stuff.

Well I still have them Stand up and This Was, when working in my shed in the UK I play them/ Arrr memories fantastic.
I used to go from my parents home in the West End, to a place called the Roundhouse in Dagenham Essex where I saw Jethro Tull, Led Zep, Edgar Broughton, Yes, Chicago and so many more. I have about 200 lps still.

Those were the days my friend I thought they'd never end.
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
