Listening to Records Again
I grew up in the heyday of vinyl records. Albums and album rock to be exact. I have missed my albums.They are sequestered in a closet in the spare bedroom.
For Christmas my wife gave me the CD "The Promise" by Springsteen. I have enjoyed it but it makes me want to listen to "Darkness on the Edge of Town" and my only copy is vinyl. So I got out the turntable and listened to it. I had forgotten how good vinyl sounds. No compression, just good warm sound.
After that I had to dig out a few other gems to listen to:
One Size Fits All - Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention
Station to Station and Low - David Bowie
Deceptive Bends - 10cc
Sunburst Finish - Be-Bop Deluxe
