This is 100% nonsensical randomness but I am curious if anyone else has noticed that the Scott Big Blue albums have a distinct "smell"? Obviously, other things like water damage, smoke, etc aside, but I have now come across several sets of these over the years and when I start putting them out on the table to go through them, anytime I walk back into the room, there is this familiar scent to them.

Do I have a point to this post? Nope. None. But sometimes that can be fun.

And if no one else has noticed this, well this post can live on as a digital example of when I started to lose my mind.

I got one of those albums in an auction lot a while ago. Stripped out the stamps and you're right, it does have its own aroma.
