As a teenager in the late 1950's, I was just on time for the surge in interest in Hi-Fi and Stereo equipment and sound. Stereo was everything, and sound effects records were a big favorite of my older Brother and myself. There were albums with animal sounds, doors opening, and race cars and almost every thing you could imagine. One I remember particularly was called "Steam Railways under Thundering Skies". This album would conjure up images of Trains under dark evening skies, threatening clouds and driving rain. Not only was it entertaining to close your eyes and imagine being at the scene, but it was fascinating to think that this flat, black, piece of vinyl, could produce stimuli that in turn, produced thought in the form of memory.
