The time to get vinyl was the dire 1980s.
In the dire 1980s everybody shifted over-night (err, not me, didn't buy a CD player until 1997) from a format that cost about £3.49 - £5.49 per unit to a format (in its infancy and with little in the way of sleeve-notes or bonus tracks, and often appallingly transferred) that cost anything from £12.99 - £18.99 per unit.
Fast forward to 2014, and now is the time to buy CDs, a format (advanced, sleeve-notes, bonus tracks aplenty) that costs anything from £1 to, at the very most, about £9.99, and yet a significant amount of people, or so we're led to believe by the Record Industry, are prepared to pay upwards of £50 for an album which, judging by all the comments of Amazon, has a 50/50 chance of being made with really poor materials despite the claims of 'virgin vinyl' etc. on the cover.
I don't get it.
