    This Is Fun

    I still have a turntable set up and like to get out the old vinyl record and give them a spin. The crackles and pops you normally hear are all part of the enjoyment.

    Rock On, Gold Dust Woman

    My life has been chronicled through music. For every period in my life, I was listening to particular genre of music. I would shift back and forth between genres. The most profound periods of my life were spent listening to Classic Rock, Alternative 80's (Joy Division, The Cure...

    Vinyl-y Goodness!

    I've been listening to vinyl on and off for about a decade and while I'm not particularly active in acquiring vinyl, I love the thrill of coming home with something.  I almost excusively buy vinyl from thrift stores and antique malls and I generally look for some...

    1987 To Present

    Crappy photo taken with my old cell phone. I got my first record player in 1987.  I was four years old, and it was a little plastic portable toy of a record player, but it played 33s and 45s.  Later that year, I got a hand-me-down stereo system when my parents bought a new...

    Best Sound

    Once I was able to afford a high end stereo I wasn't quite happy with the sound of the re-mastered cd's.  I was talked into getting a turntable and got hooked.  The sound from the album had real depth and it was clear to me that this was the sound I was missing...

    Vinyl Records

    I love to listen to my vinyl. I enjoy shopping in used record stores for albums I don't have.  By now I probably have several thousand albums.  The analog vinyl recors seem to have so much more character than the digital CD's.The vinyl titles seem much brighter and have better...

    It's Coming Back!

    More and more albums are being released on vinyl these days, and I am thrilled. Admittedly I'd be more thrilled if they were a wee bit cheaper, but hey, it's a start, right? I'm also addicted to the equipment. Consoles are my favourite, with the exception on my Sansui...

    A Lifelong Dream

    It has been said at one point or another “anything is possible”. It has also been said that “your dreams are what you make of it”. A line from a famous song declared that “if your heart is in your dream, no request is too extreme”. Where am I going with those? Just...

    I Love Lp's!

    I know vinyls aren't used much anymore but I love them, the crackle, the art, they have so much more charactor the CD's and especially MP3 format. My fave is an interview with Jimmy Page. It is a picture record. A different pic of Jimmy on each side. It is a bit hard to listen...

    My First Records ...

    The very first record I ever bought was a 45 - Elton John and Kiki Dee 'Don't Go Breakin My Heart'. Hilarious when I think of it now. The first full album I bought  was 'Frampton Comes Alive'. I have 3 older brothers and 3 older sisters so there was a ton of records in the house...

    New to Vinyl and Loving It!

    I recently picked up a used Rega turntable, and music has moved from something in the background to something I actively do.  The sound is better than cd, and I'm a sucker for ritual.
