Santana – Black Magic Woman live

It's been years since I've last bought a vinyl record. But recently I came across a live Santana album at the Aldi. A concert from 1978. And as I've recently bought a record player again I thought "Let's get this one". To me, playing these vinyl records has it's own charm: wiping the dust of the record, putting the needle into the groove, relax and enjoy! 8-)

Clear enough! Right?

For the last couple of weeks at work, I've been busy moving the warehouse from one building to another.

Once upon a time (that used to mean more than 30 years ago, nowadays it's hardly a decade ago :roll: ) there was a piece of software to organise your music files and listen to them, called Winamp. A very nice and versatile piece of software I might add. With the rise of the Android smartphones, an app was published. But at one time, Winamp died (not a clue as to why, but if anyone wants to find out, you might find the answer in the still active forum) it was even before streaming and such became a "thing".
