    Yes!

    Have you ever seen the Barbie and Ken Harley Davidson couple? These sets fetch $1000 on eBay. Big bad bikers buying Barbie dolls.

    I like your R2-D2 a lot, my fave science fiction movie character of all time! I have an original 1977 Kenner R2-D2 and C-3P0.

    It's called vinyl now because there's more than one format. back then you had either an LP, a 10", a 45/single, and later an 8 track or casette. Once other formats came about that could be categorized as records, it became necessary to have more specific names.

    "It's a Record or an Album"
    No, It's not so simple, because, first off, it doesn't need to be an album. A 'vinyl' can be an album, it can be a single song, it can be an interview recording, etc.
    On top of that, an Album can refer to a 'record' (I'll get into why I'm calling it a 'record' and not a record later), a tape format (8 track, etc), an optical disc format (CD, Blu Ray audio, etc), digital file, or more.
    Then Theres the matter of the term 'Record'. It colloquially means a little piece of fragile stuff with grooves that a needle plays in, but really it's just a shorthand of 'Recording', which all forms of audio media are. Even if you stick with just the 'thing with grooves' definition, you also have Shellacs, Acetates, Wax cylinders, and those crappy cardboard records that came in cereal boxes, ON TOP of Vinyl (in this case short for polyvinyl chloride, or PVC).
    The term Vinyl isn't 'young folks' being ignorant, but quite the contrary. When you have:
    • Wax Cylinders
    • Acetate discs
    • 78 RPM/10" Shellacs
    • 12" Shellacs
    • Pathé Disc
    • 78 RPM/10" Vinyl
    • 45 RPM/7" Vinyl
    • 33.3 RPM/10" Vinyl (EP)
    • 45 RPM/12" Vinyl
    • 33.3 RPM/12" Vinyl (LP)
    • 45 RPM/10" Vinyl (double single)
    • Magnetic Cassette Tape
    • 8 track Cassette Tape
    • Microcasette
    • Quadraphonic Cassette
    • Audio Laserdisc (extremely rare)
    • Capacitive disc
    • CD
    • DVD-A
    • Blu Ray Audio
    • minidisc
    • Audio Cartridge
    • Digital Tape
    • MP3
    • WAV
    • FLAC
    • AAC
    • OGG
    • MPEG
    • DAW session formats
    • AIFF
    • 'But wait... There's More!' (but I'm not gonna spend another two hours listing every audio format in human history)
    ...It tends to be useful to be as specific as possible. Note that all of these formats can (depending on the audio on them) be defined as either a record or an album, most of them both. Complaining about the 'kids these days' calling a vinyl record a vinyl record doesn't mean you're right. It just means you're not adapting.

    More than one format isn’t a new thing. There’s been multiple formats around for a long Time.
    vinyl is a “hipster” buzz word
    It’s still just a recording
    I bet people in the future will call cds “ shiny plastic” in the future because they are so astute.

    I’m also probably arguing a losing battle here . Bet that “vinyl” would sound better on an audiophile, trillion dollar googlephonic moon rock needle phonograph

    I know he looked androgynous but did he really have breasts?
    Great musician . He lived in Sydney for awhile and from reports of guys in the music sales business he was a nice, down to Earth guy.

    I admit when I’m wrong I’m not saying it wasn’t used but in the hand written part of the flyer it says “records”
    I’d give anyone over 55 $10 if they could prove to me that in their every day vernacular they referred to records as “vinyl” it didn’t happen at least not in these parts
