Default Re: Spinning vinyl

I had about 500 LPs. I gave them all away to a friend in the 90s at a time when I had very little space and before the vinyl revival - styluses were hard to find and cost the earth.

The collection included a rare copy of The Cheerful Insanity of Giles, Giles and Fripp, which I only got after it had been on order at the import shop for 2 years! Another rare one was Aphrodite's Child's 666, which included Vangelis and Demis Roussos before he became a crooner.

Doesn't matter. You can't take 'em with you. Listening to entire albums is a good thing to do but I don't see it as big a deal as some of you. I like MP3s. I don't need the filler, nor the fragility, scratches and pops and rapid deterioration of vinyl.

What I do miss is the presence of LPs, but I don't know how much of that is nostalgia.
