Your Vinyl Albums. (stories, pics and shits...)
« on: July 17, 2007, 02:57:34 AM »

So, my friend just gave me an old vinyl player, (i dunno how it's named in english), wow.... it's just amazing.

The frist thing i've played is the "Oh perilous world" by rasputina... track 11.. "infidel".

stunning.


i love the old style of this "thing",  and i can spend hours seeing the vinyl turing around.

oh.. the small details of life... the more enjoyable things.

Turntable!

I have my Dad's old one from the early 70's... it's brilliant. I just bought Belle and Seb's Tigermilk on vinyl...

Glad you're enjoying your return to quite possible nostalgia and enjoyment of spinning vinyl... It's a wonderful thing.

I love my record player, and refuse to give vinyl up. If I have my way, all of my music will be released on vinyl eventually.

I used to have a vinyl player but it cracked down. And it wasnt that good as well.
But one day, at friends house, eith a really good turntable, he got some records rolling and WOOOOOWWWW!!!! It felt like the band was there in front of us playing, the sound was so much freaking better.

wannabe-dolly... did you sig my first post?  :glasses1:


I listened to a load of LP-transfers of modern classical avantgarde music (lots of silent stuff), and... it doesn't sound better at all. Sometimes you have to search for the music among the surface noises. And whenever the mixes I listen through have a CD-track thrown in, sensing the actually music immediately is so much more comfortable - since your brain is not occupied with filtering out all the playing noises.

I have a ton of LPs (basically free jazz), but never listen to them. I started to transfer the best ones to CDR.
The rock-segment of my vinyl-collection meanwhile has large parts dublicated as CD. That's how fond I am of playing LPs.

I cant really talk in a general perspective becuase like i said, the one I had was shit, and I only had that one experience. and from that oen time i was really amazed, because the sound was so much alive and intense.
of course vinyl gets fucked up a lot more than cds and dvs rigth?

Nice, I didn't know Raspy did that release in vinyl.  They seem like a good fit for that and I'm impressed with the new record.  Most of my vinyl is miami booty bass (2 Live Crew, Disco Rick) and it shakes the floor at high volumes causing skipping  :sad7:

So, my friend just gave me an old vinyl player, (i dunno how it's named in english), wow.... it's just amazing.

The frist thing i've played is the "Oh perilous world" by rasputina... track 11.. "infidel".
