It was 'White Christmas' and 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen' I believe (no longer have it in front of me unfortunately!).

Count Basic, very funny That was the first time I tried uploading a picture and posting it all from my phone. Everything worked but the auto-correct.

I heard the same model when I was a kid. Of course, it was already very old at the time. I remember that I was surprised at the audio quality. It was actually better than most Victrola's at the time. The sound was 'tinny' but not nearly as 'tinny' as most.

It is definitely a surprising piece of audio technology. The kids were all amazed that it didn't have a plug!

I think they are taking the pi$$... Was a joke.

The name Count Basic is genius given the way search engines work.

Of course I know both Counts, Basie and Basic, hence the smilie in my post.

Didn't mean to take the pish out of anybody except myself perhaps.
But I agree Count Basic is a genius name for an acid jazz outfit, it works on many levels and not just because of search engines.

Mostly I didn't mean to derail this thread. Sorry about that Soda!
