Why isn't this on vinyl??
Have a favorite new album that you simply can't find on vinyl? Here is a place to discuss your dream "wish list" of titles on vinyl.

Deafening response.

Re: Why isn't this on vinyl??
You know what I miss? About buying vinyl. The whole dag on experience. Getting on the subway from the Bronx, taking the old iron horse, the no.2 train to 180th street. Then switching to the Lexington Avenue no. 5 train. To get off at 14th street. Walk thru the Village and hit the record stores. Talk with the people who work there, who love music also, and pick up some great music.

Then, maybe hit Nedicks or Nathans, or one of the cool organic cafes, or head to Chinatown for a good meal. Maybe pick up some ginseng in those little bottles!! But most of all, to get home, and open up your bag, rip off the plastic, and here it is, LOOK AT THE ALBUM COVER!! With all its artwork and liner notes. Gaze at who was playing on the LP (sidemen). And if it was a 2 lp set, even more to gaze at.

Then finally, putting that record on your turntable platter, cleaning it with Discwasher or Last record cleaner. Snap, crackle and pop in some cases, a little hiss, then presto, great music.

Is anybody with me, I MISS THAT!! The little booklet in the cd case, just doesn`t do it.

Yes. I miss the entire vinyl experience. Walking home with them under your arm. Hoping beyond hope that they were mastered correctly and wouldn't skip around crazily. Putting it on the turntable and laying on my bed checking out every detail of the cover/art/notes/credits.
It's lost now... I'm happy I was part of that era.
Just popped into my head, the first time I spun "Love Reign O'er Me." One of the greatest moments of my young life.

I too miss those days, and am considering buying into a good analog rig.... I have already sorted out the rack space, now the only problem seems to be the gear.

Try finding somewhere to demo ANY analog gear! High end gear is hard enough to find, now trying to find someone who deals multiple analog rigs is just not feasible....

Maybe I'll hear something I like @ CES this year, then again, maybe I'll stay digital...

I'm looking at upgrading my turntable.

My collection has a lot of Jimmy, Floyd, Zepplin, and others.

I still think Vinyl is impressive in a nice setup.
