Don't you want me  is the best domestic abuse/musical death threat ever!

 

 

Don't, don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it when I hear that you won't see me
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me
It's much too late to find
You think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

It's all been converted to digital.  On a separate computer and backed up redundantly on multiple drives.

 

Like my buddy RA the majority of my vinyl, 8 tracks, cassettes and CDs have been given away to friends and family.  But I did hold onto one of those Kraco 8-track cassette convertors. :P

 

Nothing mint as most of mine was well used and some stuff was bought well used.  YT almost never ceases to amaze me with what it has on it.

 

Records themselves were taken care of don't get me wrong, but the jackets, sleeves, etc... seen a lot of handling.
