I love them all and have most of them on Vinyl. You wont like the conversion process. Your albums didnt get better with age and they wont sound anywhere near as great as cd's. Add to that, unless you do a very labor intensive process of encoding separate song files, it will search like its only 2 songs (2 sides of the album).

Cds are a good choice but getting harder to get everyday. I Tunes owns the Medium now and you can get the stuff, you just have to buy it all over again in file form then hope you dont crash a drive before you had a chance to back it up!

Sad, my 400 albums sit packed away with no place to play....

Wow. Tough one.
I put off reading this thread while I gave it a bit of thought.
Neither of my parents could play an instrument, so I never learned. They did, however, have music in the house all the time.
We had a huge Grundig radio/record player in the house, and later a massive Sony reel to reel.
I heard the big bands, country and western (my NYC mom loved c&w), the Rat Pack, the standards, some jazz, doo wop, and about everything but classical.
Enter rock & roll. Whoa! Off I went.
I agree that the 1960s to early 1970s were the best of r&r. The writing and innovation using the instruments was at a peak.

With all that, and getting back on point, I think the single most influential album for me was one I heard while a h.s. freshman.
A g.f.'s mother played an album that has stuck with me my whole life, and introduced me to a whole genre of music that I had previously ignored.

Ralph Vaughn Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. Incidentally, it was the theme used in the film "Master and Commander".
It led me to a lifelong appreciation of classical music.

I highly recommend giving it a listen. Well worth 16 minutes of your time.
