I'm a collector.
Books, CDs, DVDs but originally my first love was vinyl.
When CDs came along I noticed there was something wrong. Dark Side of the Moon didn't sound right.
Something was missing. Whole notes from guitar solos disappeared into the background and it sounded kind of cold. Almost tinny.
Eventually there was a remastered release and that was much better. I've already got through three vinyl copies through wear n tear or just downright
Another album was A Secret Wish by Propaganda. When CDs first came out they had copies in Hi Fi shops to demonstrate the new digital technology.
Its a great album and the production is second to none.
I've got six different versions now, all slightly different but if push came to shove, I'd keep the vinyl. Got two copies...just in case.
Some albums aren't available.
The live album Tear It Up by Black Uhuru is a favourite and reminds me of when I saw them tour the UK. If memory is correct it was 1982. The vinyl
album runs continuously with crowd noise between tracks. I was horrified when I finally tracked down the CD. Island records had separated the tracks
with a silent gap and ruined the experience of a live event.
Anyway, a little bird tells me, you all must have similar experiences, so tell me about your favourites or worst vinyl to CD transfer.
Or maybe just tell me your best vinyl stories....
