    Was just coming on to post that - an article about vinyl that's somewhat informative (beginning and end bits, anyway) is a first.

    Carl and the Passions- So Tough is not 'largely awful' though.

      Interestingly a local vinyl vendor told me that CD's represent about 2/3 of all new releases sold, incl. vinyl and dls. But apparently no media cares to tell the story bc it's not sexy.

        That Spingsteen playback sounds like my idea of hell.

        "He was not a fan of Facebook, or Twitter. “The internet would have been the wet dream of the Stasi,” he said."

        Ha ha.

          Get's a PHWOOOAR from me!

          Just today received the Macho Alex CD through the post and eagerly awaiting the gatefold CD reissue of Joe Shlabotnik's 'Golden Throats' too... I'm unfeasibly excited.

            Some things sound better on vinyl and some sound better on CD. And not always because the vinyl pressing is of such unbelievably poor quality (TAME IMPALA/MODULAR RECORDS I AM LOOKING AT YOU).

              My personal philosophy: Was it originally recorded/mastered with vinyl in mind? Is it well-known enough that any remastering will be talented and respectful? If we get yes and no respectively, I'll take the vinyl.

                Anyone know who they mean when referring to the California-based reissue label who make poor pressings from digital files? 4 Men With Beards?

                  Must be 4 Men With Beards, whose LPs sound shit.
