Welcome to the Record Gallery

Okay, here's my new blog section topic and how it came about.  Some weeks ago my coworkers were rambling on about the song "Hair Of The Dog".  I interjected not only the song name because they didn't know it, but also that it's the title track from the Nazareth album circa 1975.  I happen to have a collection of several hundred vinyl records which I rarely use.  Some of my favorite ones I've transferred to CD for convenience, but they're just sitting around begging for attention.  Hair Of The Dog happens to be one of them.  I said I'd bring it in.
