Atari 5200 Guy Posted October 28, 2020 Report Share Posted October 28, 2020 (edited) Who here remembers vinyl records/albums? Who remembers K-Tel? For those who don't know here's a bit of a summed up history. Music. Before cellphones and music compressed so much you could fit almost an entire library of music on those phones music came on pressed disc made out of vinyl. And before the Now series of music compilations there was a company before them that did the same thing known as K-Tel. K-Tel made music compilations on 33 1/3 albums, cassettes, and 8-tracks. The did try to make the transition to CDs but didn't last long once CDs were introduced. Ah...good old K-Tel. If you wanted the latest hits but couldn't afford to grab every single or all the original artist's album releases you grabbed a K-Tel album. These discs contained anywhere between 12 to 20 songs in both rock and country genres. They were very popular items. Sometimes they had that one song you never heard before that was also really good...yet could not be found anywhere else. Once I had finished finally setting up my TT I began going through my K-Tel collection. Look what I found inside of one of them. Advertisements for the double ender 2600 games. I thought you guys would enjoy seeing this. Oh...and... ..my TT. Technics direct drive semi automatic. About as old as me and still ready to rock. So...if you have one spin it while playing Atari. You might just surprise yourself. Edited October 29, 2020 by Atari 5200 Guy RickR, HDN, socrates63 and 2 others 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
