I recently rediscovered my Dad's record collection from the late 50's and early 60's, the sweet spot of the Post Modern era. It contains a lot of rarities and musical gems you don't often hear, even on the "oldies" stations. I quickly realized the collection might be enjoyed by others so I'm embarking on a musical journey which I share as a tribute to my Dad. So hoist up your Old Fashioneds and Whiskey Sours and step aboard the musical time machine of My Dad's Vinyl!... Show More
