I bought my recent belt-drive from my neighbour -- he is reduced to MP3
now, his spouse seems not to notice this yet ;-)
Unfortunately I seldom find the time to grant full 60+ minutes of
attention to an artist so a crude technology that allows me to believe I
heared something the right way after but 20 minutes is good for me ;-)
But seriously: I am not a complete vinyl-zelot. CDs are very much OK for
me and if I have to choose to by a vinyl-box of Portisheads Third for
about 50 Euros or the CD for 15, I prefer to buy the CD.
And I have to admit, that many LPs today are simply a CD-Master pressed
to grooves. Radioheads In Rainbows really sounds like one of these
cheapo-60-minutes Compilation-LPs sold in the 80ies. Even the MP3s sound
better. But there are also gems like I am a Bird Now by Anthony and the
Johnsons, that indeed sounds better than its CD-Version.
