Sometimes ya just got to get a reproduction. For years I have been on the lookout for a working 1950s LP record player that could also play 45's. Never found one. So about a month ago I decided it was time to throw in the towel and get a reproduction. My inspiration? I wanted to be able to acquire and play my favorite Christmas record of all time - Phil Spector's "A Christmas Gift for You". If you've never heard this album, I think you can hear it on youtube. Its 50's / 60's Christmas awesomeness. Anywhoooo, I got a turqouise Crosley player from Urban Outfitters. Its wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL. I also got a reproduction 2009 pressing of the Phil Spector Christmas album (but it displays the original picture on the cover). The sound is great, and I take comfort in knowing I can get a replacement needle if needed. 3 Holiday Cheers for much needed and useful reproductions! Thanks Megan for the direction!
