Vinyl will always survive because it has the BEST SOUND QUALITY OMG SO MUCH BETTER THAN DIGITAL.

(I wonder what % of new vinyl is cut from digital files sent to the pressing plant. I'm gonna wager 100%.)
Yup, but...
listening to records on those huge old Tannoys or equivalent speakers is just too good

Who's the music guy who is making massive digital music files (of older stuff) trying to improve digital sound and longer term storage?

I do love vinyl though. I grew up on my dad's record collection, pulling out random LPs and putting them on the record player. Fell in love with 60-70s rock from a young age. I was doing this when my junior high classmates were discovering shit like Bon Jovi, and mocking the shit out of me for listening to shit like Jethro Tull (aka 'some fag with a flute')

There's just something about going through the effort of hauling out this great big thing, placing the needle on, sitting back and listening to the warmth and snap/crackle/pop of a dirty/scratched record. It's like sitting by a campfire or something, hard to explain.

My dad had this record, it's apparently worth a bunch of money now.


The song was the opening track of the album. April Wine covered it and everyone thinks it's their song instead.
