The vinyl revival... are you guys buying?

Recommended Posts

I don't bother with vinyl anymore and I don't even own a record player. It took me a good few years to swap over from vinyl to CD back in the day, which was purely down to the fact vinyl had a much nicer, warmer sound compared to CD (and with a good stereo system, still does to this day). I don't think i'll ever go back though. I still have a fair few of my old vinyl hanging about and occasionally I get them out and have a flick through.

Vinyl is NOT a lazy man's nor poor man's sport.

 

First, you MUST have a decent receiver / amplifier, and more importantly an above average turntable AND stylus. If you lost your vinyl virginity on a $99.00 cheap-o set-up with USB port you'll never fully understand.

 

For those of us who, for some sick reason, actually enjoy cleaning records before every spin, cleaning the $400.00 stylus on our $1,000.00 turntable every 8th. album side, it's pure ear candy.

 

And trust me, I am NOT bragging that I have a $1,000.00 turntable and a $400.00 stylus, because it most audio circles, that's pee-on stuff :)

I can't think of anything else at the moment.

I have Guns N' Roses- Chinese Democracy on vinyl. I don't have a way to listen to it though, because I don't have a record player and it's 2,000 miles away. I sent my sister a copy of Sister Sins latest on vinyl. Something tells me she hasn't given it a spin yet even though she has a record player.

I've been collecting all of the Cult's albums on vinyl but only for the artwork. I have them framed for hanging. Otherwise my only two lps are Shark Island's S'cool Bus and A=440 for the supreme vocals of my favorite singer Thomas LaVerdi.

 

Funny . was listening to S'Cool Bus today. One of my favorite albums. Why has it never made the light of day on CD? Got the Alter Ego album on vinyl as well. Digitized it all years ago though.

 

One rainy Sunday I need to go through all my vinyl and see if any is worth something.

Vinyl scratches. Then you have to re-buy the album.

Always hated that.

CD's for me

Don't care about sound differences - that's mainly for people who grew up with LP's who became used to the sound.

I'm sure those who grew up with CD's listen to vinyl and think it sounds like shit.

Yuk I remember cleaning the needle on my fathers record player what a pain in the ass.

 

No I never got into records just cassettes and CD's.

So now is where I cap on your spelling I assume... Stand Talk is a great movie starring Dolly Parton or is that Straight Talk and is the KD album entitled Stand Tall??? I forget. :)

No. "Stand Talk" is Killer Dwarfs covering the "Straight Talk" soundtrack. Much like Guardian recording Stryper's first album. It isn't very good, as one might imagine, but it's a cool item to have in the collection.

I wish we could arrange a HH New Years Party where we could all just meet up and we could make our team building exercise just a big, massive, heavy handed gang beatdown of Karpetface.

 

I think that would really boost morale around here.

Vinyl over the last month or so :

 

Creed - s/t (The 70's band) as my orig had a big scratch right on the last track from god knows where.

 

Eagles - Motel Six...strangely bought a few days prior to GF's death ... I was in the process of assessing things I wanted by them back on vinyl (or ones I always wanted in this case) and this was the first and then the news struck...maybe it accelerated me in getting the others...all of which I'm recollecting from ones I had (even though I've got them all on CD in that box set that came out some years ago..and some still on vinyl, but different :D ) ... hence Desperado had to be the white label.

Eagles - Hotel Calif (Green Vinyl - already have it on black)

Eagles - Their Greatest Hits 1971 - 1975 (Green vinyl)

Eagles - Desperado orig white Asylum label.

Eagles - The Long Run

 

Boatz - s/t

Styx - Cornerstone (Triptych sleeve)

 

Next month....probably Eagles - s/t but the Rhino re-issue where the original sleeve concept is realised as the foldout poster rather than the compromised gatefold version Asylum put out originally. I've already got the album in gatefold on the blue Asylum label as a Canadian pressing that I bought in 1980 while over there (with the inner sleeve from my orig U.K. white label version...bit of a hybrid that)

 

Maybe Eagles - On the Border (again has to be white Asylum label),

and maybe again Eagles - s/t on the white label.

Maybe a decent copy of Eagles - Crazed and Snake Eyed if I can track one down at a decent price in good nick.

No rush with these though. Then I'll be done with them haha!
