    I have a recording of the St. John Passion with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau from the late 1950s - recorded in East Germany.

    And one of Rameau and Scarlatti performed by Robert Casadesus.

    Both of them are responsible for my musical taste to this day.

    I heard Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears give the same programme two years before this was recorded. It probably made more of an impression on me than anything else has done.

    Benji - always challenging the singer to stay on track. And immitating Schubert here.

    I would like to have heard him and Pears sing the Serenade live.

    I have LPs from the early 70s, but some of the music that I listen to is performed by still living artists, but is centuries old.

    I have jazz and blues original artist recordings back to the twenties and I'm fond of the Paul Tortelier 1961 recordings of the Bach cello suites.
    I'd much rather lay in my bunk all freakin day lookin at Youtube videos .

    I have to admit that much of my musical tastes were dictated by Elvis. Drove me straight to classical

    I have Monteverdi, an old man's oldie.

    Not the original record, though. A cover by some modern band.

    That OP just reminds me of our sadly now departed next-door-but-one neighbour, a perpetually jolly Tibetan fellow who was the first from his nation to settle in NZ, back in the sixties We were at party at the next house along and the host was spinning some LPs, mainly Elvis. He gets up and excuses himself, "I'll be back in a mo, I going to get a bucket-load of Frankie Lane." RIP Thuten.

    My friend's mom didn't like Elvis, which was a bit strange, as she loved "It's Now or Never", "Can't help Falling in Love", and a number of other songs she heard him sing. My aunt never liked Elvis until two years before she died. She was going somewhere with a friend and was really enjoying the CD; was surprised to learn it was Elvis.

    Hard to place a timeline of some artists, but I've also got Jim Reeves, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Eddie Arnold, and I enjoy them all. Come to the conclusion I'm not a fan of groups.

    I have a huge "pile" of my parents old records, including some that we used to listen to on a wind up gramophone when I was a kid. But the termites ate the box they were in, ate the labels off the albums and ate the gramophone. JayInOz

    My first was Bach.
    I play occasionally some one sided Zonophone 78' dating to 1910 or so. Gallicurchi, Clara Butt, a few tenors.

    Although I long ago sold all my old vinyl, I remember this being my first LP purchase. Probably because I fell in love with the Gretsch in the picture.

    Almost 50 years since this one came out in 1975.

    Sweety used to program radio in DC in the 70s & 80s and has a couple of boxes of vinyl from then and before. Noticed some Stones rare ones. Like the one with the cover having slip bits with different faces for the band.
    Me, still a few vinyl from 60s & later. But, no record player at the mo. Couple of Dylan ones in there.
    Now, Spanish guitar and classic stuff.

    Like Peerie Maa, I listen to really old music. I have the Watersons' Frost and Fire, both CD and vinyl. They recorded it in 1965, but the songs come out of the depths of time.

    One Beethoven. Then a large gap to about 1977 - an early Dire Straits single.

    My collection is a source of annoyance to me as I rarely use it, I am starting to think of it as "clutter" a problem I am trying to eliminate.

    I use Alexa now and my favourite music is the "standards! that are never out of a musician's repertoire

    Al Bowly sings them well.




    We did a lot of ballroom dancing in our lives and now I hear an oldie and I am back in my memories in my tux under the glitter ball dancing to sensuous music with romantic lyrics.

    It's the music that's important and if you glance around at a SEATED Audience's feet and they are not tapping or their legs swinging it's rubbish.

    One of my uncles hosted a music program on ABC radio, using really old records from his own huge collection. He died two years ago. No idea what happened to his collection- or his sound equipment and ham radio stuff, which was his passion for half a century. JayInOz

    Would these be considered oldies?

    The George Mitchell Collection: Volumes 1-45
    (Fat Possum)

    As a high school senior in 1962, George Mitchell began wandering Memphis back alleys and the rural roads of Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi in search of the blues. He found them all right, as evidenced by this 7-CD collection of recordings spanning 20 years and including a few familiar names like R.L. Burnside, Robert Nighthawk, and Big Joe Williams, as well as dozens of virtual unknowns.

    Clocking in at more than eight hours and 174 tracks, the collection might be overkill for the casual fan.

    It looks like I did well by buying when I did.
