Vinyl Only N.P.

Postby robertff » 17 Jan 2018, 17:11

There used to be a thread somewhere for N.P. vinyl only but sadly can't find it. However, with the renewed interest in vinyl thought I'd resurrect the thread just to see how long it keeps going.

I buy vinyl, (or L.P.s as they were once called), always have done, always will do. I know all the arguments put forward against buying it but I really don't care, I like buying vinyl and prefer it to any other recorded medium. So these are the records I've been playing over the last couple of days - big R.E.M. splurge as you will see.

So anyone else still playing/buying vinyl? If so, why not bung 'em down here?

Almost everything I've posted in NP for the past couple of years has been vinyl.
In 2014 I started a project to play all the vinyl I have in artist - alphabetical and chronological order. Four years on I am now up to Springsteen.
The exception to this rule being, any album newly purchased that would alphabetically be before the current artist I was up to would need to be played before continuing.
So for example I picked up this today for 75p:

I've listened to 3792 LP's to date.
Not long to go now.

The deluxe vinyl/CD version just out. Really great album, better than Rumours I think.

Good set, Rumours is better, wasn't impressed with the packaging though. Been listening to the extras cd. Like Rhiannon with the Stevie before and after studio chatter. Need to check out the live cd next.

Not got around to the CDs yet, quite like the packaging though - it's a little lumpy in places but still quite like it.

Initial impressions, more of the same, no great departure although I'm not complaining, I like their sound.

Ordering the vinyl version today, apparently you get the full 8cd autorip with it. cant wait forever for the big set to come down to affordable price.

What I've heard of this to date sounds excellent.
