The awesomest record collection I ever did score

So I have my kids to thank for this adorable vinyl LP case, believe it or not. When I saw the $75 price tag, I didn't even want to haggle with the amateur estate saler who'd dreamed up that exorbitant figure. I never pay that much for anything except furniture, and how far down was she going to come if we were starting at $75? All the way to $25 it turned out, after the kids begged me to buy it, and it also turned out the case had been undervalued from the get-go because it contained a veritable time capsule of late ’70s/early ’80s kid music, almost all with nary a scratch or warp. If I were to sell off these records individually I would definitely recoup my investment and then some. But what kind of heel would break up such a fabulous collection, so lovingly curated by some kid who easily could've been me? Perish the thought.

Herewith, a complete list of the contents (I was too lazy to photograph them all):
