To Touch History.....

I am a sucker for History....I have this interest, I want to know.....I want to feel.....I want to understand.....

I had a friend who collected coins.....he had coins from the Romans....

It really hit me when I would hold these coins in my hand.....I wanted to know those who made these coins....they are long gone, and yet here is a bit of themselves passed down......

So today I see this:

The Abbey Road Studios recording console used in the creation of Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon will hit the auction block in March.

The Abbey Road Studios EMI TG12345 MK IV recording console, which was housed in Abbey Road's famed Studio 2 from 1971 to 1983, is one of the marquee items in Bonham's TCM
Presents… Rock and Roll Through the Lens auction, which takes place March 27th in New York.

While no estimate has been set, the console is expected to fetch six-digit bids.

Three Beatles – Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – each recorded music as solo artists with the console, with Kate Bush and the Cure also occupying Studio 2 to use the two-of-a-kind desk.

The seller, producer Mike Hedges, purchased the console directly from Abbey Road Studios in 1983, when the studio upgraded their equipment. Hedges kept the console in his own studio since then, with the TG12345 MK IV still in "excellent working condition."

I read that Neil Young has the console that the Beach Boys used to record Pet Sounds.....

I don't play, and yet I would put this stuff up in my house and just treasure it....

MY father passed recently and amongst his things ( he was a pack rat) we found coin and paper money collections. It has been fun going through them and doing some research on why he held on to specific ones.
