Day 238 / 365

I hate listening to techno on vinyl, I never know whether its skipping or whether its just part of the song.

Interesting Fact: Vinyl recordings have been around longer than you think- they have been traced back to the early 19th century in France, as well as to a man named Emile Berliner * (D.O.B. May, 20, 1851). Emile invented the flat disc record in 1888, produced from vulcanized rubber between 12.5cm-18cm thick.Β  As time progressed, the format was improved- going through transformations in both recording methods as well as materials used (shellac/slate, adding/removing a horn, thickness, etc). Β  Perhaps we can all celebrate Emile this year by playing our favorite album on May 20th. ( http://recordcollectorsguild.org/vinyl-5-awesome-interesting-facts/ )

  1. Growing up, my dad would play his old vinyls a lot, so I completely understand the sentiment. The nostalgia brought about by the muffled, scratchy quality of an old record just can’t be reproduced by a crystal-clear digital re-recording.

    • One day you will have one. Spotify is pretty good I enjoy it every now and then. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. πŸ™‚

  2. Great entry. My husband owns tons of vinyl and gave me a few that I shared with my students. He loves seeing renewed interest in vinyl as he is definitely an analog guy in a digital world.

    • That is amazing. I feel like vinyls never will go out of style. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing this with us. πŸ™‚

  3. Nothing like the sound of vinyl! My brother owned a record store in NYC for several years! I missing going to record shops to look at album covers!
