Oh, this is so amazing. The vinyl sounds so lovely and wonderful, and there are all kinds of little hidden delights from the color of the vinyl to the liner notes that require you to get a magnifying glass and to turn the record around in a circle as you read them. So much joy in this bundle. Sorry, I know you were looking for a reason to save the money... :-) Afraid I can't help you with that. These are keepsakes that with good care will give you enjoyment for the rest of your life.
