The record albums I owned until 2015

This is a list of the vinyl record albums I started collecting as a teenager in the 1960s. I played these on a turntable until I had a house fire in 1982 that warped most of them beyond playable. I still owned them for decades until finally deciding I would never play them again, so I made this list and got rid of them (a very sad time). When I was listening to these, over the years I regularly added and removed albums to my collection (read about that here). The list is mostly alphabetical by artist last name, or group name or album title if not a single artist. The songs from many of these are now ripped to digital and I listen to them on my Smartphone (previously on an iPod).
