As we all know, from watching the movies all the old records were usually stored in cardboard boxes in an old dark basement, sometimes with the cob webs and lots of dust. In most cases, it was always the lady in her dress and heels that went clumping down the stairs, fighting off the spider webs as she was searching for the light and blowing away the dust.
