But record covers are square!
Interesting thought I keep having as I read these, is that record are
rather fragile and most are not being made any more. Do libraries
circulate CDs copies (under fair use) or do the records just get worn
and mishandled until they are unplayable? Perhaps I am too precious
about them, but I never ever let anyone play my records, unless they
asked me to play them for them... too many damaged discs!
Just my thought...
