I’ve started collecting LP’s again. Actually, accumulating would be a better description as I’m not into vinyl for the collect-ability or trendiness of LP’s as a medium, more for the opportunity to experience music that I like in the format that it was meant to be played. To listen to music on vinyl is to experience that music in a way that digital formats can’t possibly recreate. There’s more depth, more texture and even a whiff of nostalgia when listening to music on an LP. I could wax lyrical about vinyl vs digital, but it would be pointless – I can hear the difference!
