You just HAD to 1-up everyone with your TD-124, didn't you?
(Joking aside, that's probably one of the most beautiful TT's I've ever seen )
I hope the concept of "an album" never goes. Especially with the digital generation, "got the new album by so an so" even now sounds dated
(retreating to the middle aged corner of the room ;)
singles and albums always sway back and forth, it's not a simple issue of generations. single 45's were all the rage before the 1960's brought the album back... single CDs were also popular in the mid-90's, a break between album-length CDs before and after. it's cyclical :D
