I like Vinyl but my record player has been broke for a few years.

Plus Chevy didnt install a record player in my Trailblazer when I bought it. ;)

 

I did go into a local used cd/record store yesterday for the first time and there were many great second hand LP's that were anywhere from $2-$5. If my record player worked I would of picked a few of them up.

Convenience and durability of the CD format compared to vinyl.

 

CD is the format that has been dominant for most of the time period that this music has been available.

 

From the early 1990s onward, very little in the genre has been available on vinyl.

 

 

Vinyl has been relegated to a niche format that audiophiles use; it no longer has mass market penetration.

Um do they still make vinyl? CD's are worth much more as far as value goes on the market, sure some of us still listen to our old records if any of us still have a record player that works.

 

 

Some artists/labels still release vinyl believe it or not.

I love my old vinyl collection but based strictly on terms of portability, storage space and durability, CDs are the way to go :woot:

 

I still pull my crate of LPs out of the closet once in a blue moon to spin some classic vinyl, but those days are fewer and farther between nowadays... I've replaced most of my vinyl with CD copies anyway...

I've bought a few LPs but they're hard to store and to be honest, I never liked the sound they produced. Always seemed crackly and void of balls, for my money. Maybe I never had a great record player, but I never really had a good experience with an LP. While I'm here, anyone got any idea what a fully signed copy of Black N'Blue's 'In heat' would be worth? That's something else I'd love to do, sell my LPs.

Does 'fully signed' mean youve written your full name on it?

 

I'd guess a fair bit, vinyl still goes well on eBay. I sold a silver-disc of Bryan Adams "Everything I do..." single for $160. F**k knows why I bought that.

 

Metal & Thrash vinyl especially still goes well on eBay. So does the old 60's/70's stuff.

Ditto most people. I have loads of vinyl but nothing to Play it on anymore, plus with the amount I have, space is a major problem. Over the years, have tried to update most of my vinyl collection onto CD, pretty successfully, althogh there are still loads of records that I would still like to have on CD versions.

 

Have to disagree wIth Geoff a little on the sound you used to get on some vinyl as, in some instances, it was way superior to the compressed, lifeless sound of some of their CD versions released later. Compare some early to mid period cd's to their vinyl counterparts and see the difference.

My son sees my crate of LPs at the bottom of the closet every once in a while and goes "What are those, Daddy?" When I say "records," he sez "What are records?" and I say "They were the Stone Age equivalent of CDs." :lol:

:lol: Yes, fully signed by me, mate. Haha.

 

Holy shitballs @ the Bryan Adams sell. I might try and list the Black n'Blue LP when I can and see how it goes. I wonder what postage for an LP is worth...

Yeah that's what's put me off selling my vinyl. I guess you'd have to insure the parcel. Also the UK post recently changed (Jez might be able to tell us more here!) so it's more about the size rather than the weight. Making it tons more costly to post records.

 

Frankly I think even CD's will become obsolete too, in 3 or 4 generations time. Lots of bands are now download only, & future generations will all be on the internet, so I can't see Retail music stores surviving. I don't know how they do now?

 

Either way, it will be the sparrows that decide the future.

Could not agree more, I have hundreds of vinyl albums in mint condition and will never part with them......may be one day, they will be sought after collectors items.....some probably are now.

Truth.

 

Yeah, I have to admit I have been getting raped with postage costs on these recent CDs I've sold. I don't know what the f*ck happened since last time I put stuff up on ebay, but I've lost a bit with every postage cost so far... and the USD/AUD exchange rate doesn't help things either. Great to buy stuff, not so great to sell stuff. :(

 

I agree CDs will be gone, sadly maybe even sooner than 3 or 4 generations. Most music sites for current music are all about downloads completely. :(

Yeah, I think we're all the same here, and hopefully a lot of people still are. I have to download a lot these days, because I really cannot afford to buy them... but I keep my lists and am slowly buying all the best when I get the chance. I still love my original CDs. :)

    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg  
    • Credit must be given where it's due, and I do like the effort put into this one. To be frank, I thought the first 5 songs were pretty shit. All the while I was listening, wondering what became of these guys. The most frustrating song of those first few is 'Eternal.' I wrote in my little ratings thing that it almost sounds to me like these guys are trying to sound bad because, otherwise, this is a pretty good song. But it's just done poorly.  Anyway, I want to be fair to these guys and I have to say, that from song 6 the mood in the room seems to lift and they start to give it a fair crack. They drop the mopey post-grunge blandom and have a crack at some decent melodic type of rock. Spoiler alert - I don't actually think there's a keeper track on the album, but holy shit they get close.  'Temples,' 'Alive,' 'Heaven Knows' and 'Someone's watching over me' are all, four in a row, good, strong songs. And then 'Love Is The Only Place' hits and I was taken aback. Unfortunately, they're not the band they used to be and I am 100% convinced they couldn't hit the heights of the debut even if they did everything possible to try... but goodness do they get close with this track. A bit of polish and finesse and this one wouldn't be a bad stab at what they did so well on their debut.  Sadly, the album's worst song follows in 'The Undertaker' - what a piece of shit, lol. Really grates me because this is the discussion point I've had with christians that aggravates me the most, and it's in a song, so naturally I hate it. And then 'Afterlife' isn't amazing, but pretty decent. Before the album finishes on a high, with one of the best songs on the album with a nice hook - 'Strange New World.' So overall, like I say, credit where it's due. After the first few songs I was close to closing up shop and calling this a pass, but thankfully, they took me on a ride and it was pretty cool. They're a dim shadow of the band they used to be, to be totally fair, but I like that they showed a bit of fight with this album. Better than expected. 
    • The goddamn ADV fellow involved. Again.  But I like the song anyway. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is proud to present Killer Kings' debut album entitled "Burn For Love". Killer Kings is a musical alliance between Gregory Lynn Hall (ex- 101 South) and Tristan Avakian (ex- Red Dawn, Queen Extravaganza).  Killer Kings first came about when Frontiers Records President Serafino Perugino thought of bringing Gregory Lynn Hall, the former singer of 101 South, an AOR band who released three albums between 2000 and 2009, and Tristan Avakian, a very gifted guitarist who made his name in the '90s with the Melodic Hard Rock band Red Dawn, together. Musically, Killer Kings mixes the AOR approach of both Red Dawn and 101 South with some interesting twists.  Gregory Lynn Hall has had a long history in the music industry, in all areas from studio work to live performances. Gregory pounded the pavement in the thriving '80s Hollywood rock scene, playing at all the rock venues from Gazzaris to the Troubadour to The Country Club. He eventually left L.A. after the '80s hard rock scene died down and became a session vocalist, singing on many well known Christian artists' albums. In the late '90s, he returned to California and in 1999, while doing a session in Malibu, he met Roger Scott Craig (ex-Fortune) and thus 101 SOUTH was born. Shortly after the first 101 SOUTH album (2000) was finished, Gregory was asked to join the band Heaven & Earth as their bass player and toured with them to support the "Windows to the World" album. He would then go on to record two more acclaimed 101 SOUTH albums and one solo record in 2014. Tristan Avakian is a professional musician of many years with extensive experience in theater, touring, writing, and producing. Cirque du Soleil, Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Biohazard are just some of the names from the varied genres and artists he has immersed himself in. He has also worked with producers such as Steve Thompson and Rob Thomas and joined the Queen Extravaganza show in the USA. He is also known for being the guitarist of '90s Melodic Hard Rockers Red Dawn, a band formed by former Rainbow keyboardist David Rosenthal, together with other two Rainbow alumni Chuck Burgi and Greg Smith, which released a critically acclaimed album for EMI Toshiba in Japan in 1993. Tracklisting: 1. Burn For Love 2. I Will Be Stronger 3. Higher 4. In A Different World 5. Another Night, Another Fight 6. Phoenix 7. Two Ships 8. Losing Me 9. Do Or Die 10. The Pains Of Yesterday 11. Ain’t No End In Sight Line-Up: Gregory Lynn Hall - Vocals Tristan Avakian - Guitars Alessandro Del Vecchio - Bass, Keyboards Nicholas Papapicco - Drums Additional Musicians: Tommy Denander - Keyboards on 'Burn For Love'         
    • The search button is your friend, not your enemy...
    • Loving aspects of this. It's like a cassette tape, actually. I quite love most of the first half, but the second side balladry is a bit of a pass for me. The one exception being 'Smoking.' What a cool groove. I wasn't sure I was going to love it from the start, but man it's a cool song.  'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is an absolute belter, and I like the first 8 songs (except 'Time to let it go' and 'Don't go'). Good album with a very nice sound.
