Vinyl Records and CD’s Part 2

Here is the second part of this article by The Lonely Note. Here is the first post on the difference between vinyl records and CD’s in case you missed it. Portability This is probably the one category where the two camps of format fanatics can agree. The compact disc wins the portability argument in one […]

Vinyl Vs CD. Analog Vs Digital

Great post over a The Lonely Note, talking about the difference between vinyl records and CD’s. It’s a three part article, so I’ll split it up too. Introduction Perhaps the only argument that has persisted on longer than the vinyl vs. CD debate is that one about the chicken and the egg. Both camps have […]

Journey – Escape Album on LP

Journey is one of those great 80’s rock bands that people either love or hate. Personally, I love Journey, otherwise I wouldn’t have their album. You can buy this album at Musicstack. I have also recently posted about Journey – Frontiers album. This was actually referred to as the worst number 1 album ever by […]

Van Halen Self Titled Debut on Vinyl LP

All right, time for some rock. Nobody rocks like Van Halen, even Van Halen (Hagar era) can’t touch them. Sorry to those Sammy Hagar fans out there. I like his stuff, but it just doesn’t do it for me like Van Halen with David Lee Roth. Released in 1978, this album has made it past […]

The Austin Record Convention has been meeting since 1981, brings in over 300 dealers, and over 1 million records, tapes, CD’s, and even an 8-track […]

Vinyl Records Making a Comeback? Thanks For the Newsflash

Well, Time Magazine has now just noticed that vinyl records are becoming more popular. How very journalistic of them to be so on top of popular culture (sorry for the sarcasm). After reading their article, I really got the idea that Time thinks that the reason vinyl is selling more is that young people think […]

Local Record Stores. Keeping the Vinyl Record Industry Alive.

Well, I finally found a good record store in my town. There are so many places that have some records, but those are in pretty bad shape, and there’s not a lot to choose from. Checkered Records, however, was exactly what I was looking for. They don’t have a website, and are only open Thursday, […]

Maynard Ferguson – M.F. Horn Two Vinyl Album

This is one of my first posts to show the real extent of my collection and musical tastes. I love metal. I love rock. I love just about everything. Except rap (I can listen to old school) and country. Sorry. As a musician myself, I love listening big band and jazz music, and nobody does […]
