Good Grief!  Got turntable?  I think it might be time to get a turntable.  It's funny how this kind of thing has become popular again, and just in time for that... more than 15000 vinyl albums that are spanning over 60 years were found in a warehouse basement in Minneapolis.

They were put up for sale a week ago, last Thursday.

The records were almost thrown into a landfill until three vintage collectors saved them from the basement of a Minneapolis warehouse. The collection, spanning 60 years, is being sold starting Thursday, Jan. 2.

“We were days away from them being completely gone and no one would have even known about them,” said Toni Johnson, owner of Turquoise Vintage.

And there seemed to be quite a mixture of albums too... like different records-sizes.

15,000 records, LPs, 45s, and 78s, to Kearns’ store, Junket: Tossed and Found off University Avenue on the border of Minneapolis and St. Paul. From there, they called a vinyl expert to help them sort through boxes of records.

They sorted through some of the records and got the collection ready for sale.

If you are into this sort of thing... there may be some left.  I would check it out.  And I may have to go and buy a turntable.  Like now.
