In the news tonight....
« on: August 19, 2008, 11:12:27 PM »

Watched national news just now and guess what's making a huge "comeback".....as if it NEVER left some of us............the vinyl LP is making a huge comeback with the younger generation.  This IS fantastic!!!!  The "LP" has never, ever left my collection of music.  Some of my best music is on "vinyl".  And a turntable has always and will forever be in my stereo set-up.  They're expecting sales of LP's to double this year.  What's y'all's thoughts on this.  I think it's super!!!!!

It's great, and actually it makes sense. People have mp3s when they're on the go now, and vinyl have the best sound (by a mile, the warmness is incomparable) so the CD has rather little to offer. In the UK many alternative artists now sell vinyls and they give free digital downloads with them, which is imo the best strategy atm

With you on this. Vinyl to save the industry. Nothing replaces putting on an album and placing the needle in anticipation. Hope it catches on. If I were to release, I'd certainly put out a 1st press on vinyl.

I'm so excited about this.  I want the "younger people" to know and hear the sound of the LP on the turntable.  "Dark Side of The Moon" by Pink Floyd is the ULTIMATE on a turntable.  And then I think the next best LP on the "table" is The Alan Parsons Project, "Tales of Mystery and Imagination....Edgar Allan Poe".....i.e......."The Raven"........I can blow my windows out at my house with that vinyl on the table............... 8)

I remember I was hanging out with my step cousin a year or so ago and asked if I could put on my record and she asked what a record was.  :-/

^^^^^^Duh??????  That's why I want the youth today to know the joys of an LP vinyl album.  I remember in my "pre-teens", I couldn't wait to go to the local record shop once a week and see what was new.  Album artwork was at the "BEST" back then............

^^^^^My dad's old albums are all "polka" music......."Polish" dance music.  But yes, I am so excited that "vinyl" is making a comeback.  Hey!!!!  Doesn't EVERYTHING make a comeback after so many years???  PLEASE!!!!!---NO 1980's-----But I'm having a "ball" with the 70's stuff that's out.  I love the bell-bottoms and platform shoes.  They are, and were, to die for..........
Now..............back to turntables and "vinyl".....................

Vinyl is not so good cause it gets scratched and the needle breaks... What is passe is passe.

All things must pass but vinyl is the inner light from where preserved audio pleasure began. It's what musicians made music for. :)

^ So do I  :)

We have a record shop, established in 1980 i think, and they stil sell and trade records. But I dont buy them since we have no record player. We used to have one, but with us moving around .... I got no idea where it is.

But I think its nice LPs are coming back! ... I'd love to get the feeling of what it was like...!

 by the way, Dont DJs use vinyls?

^^^^^^I know what you mean by "warmness" in the sound of vinyl.  Nothing better than putting an old Beatles' record on the turntable and listening to the subtel "hisses and pops"............ahhhhhh........the good ol' days are coming back.......

Did any of you people see this or read this????  On my AOL news this morning, the British press talked to Heather Mills' former assistant and this "Elyzabeth" says Heather was a "pathological liar and the ultimate gold-digger".  Now, we all knew that now, didn't we????
