Vinyl Records: “The Good, The Bad, and The Unforgiven”‏

The Good:

 “My mother and father are very involved with music. It’s completely part of their soul. They have an incredible record collection, all vinyl, of some of the best artists, in my eyes, that you can come across”. P. J. Harvey

 

“It was so exciting to go to the record shop and buy a piece of vinyl and hold it, read the liner notes, look at the pictures. Even the smell of the vinyl”. Martin Gore

“I’m very excited about the resurgence of vinyl which seems to parallel a growing interest in live performance”. Saul Williams

“People don’t appreciate music any more. They don’t adore it. They don’t buy vinyl and just love it. They love their laptops like their best friend, but they don’t love a record for its sound quality and its artwork”. Laura Marling

“I hate the technological rip-offs that pass for music formats these days, and go back to vinyl to hear a good record because the sound is always so much fuller. I don’t even like listening to music in the car”. John Lydon

 



“I think it’s important for people who love music to retain physical CDs or even vinyl, because it sounds so great and so much warmer than music over the internet”.
Norah Jones

“Well, everybody faces the fact there really aren’t many records stores around to just go and browse. Maybe browse online, yet that tactile feel of flipping through a stack of vinyl remains one of life’s simple pleasures”. Billy Gibbons

“Water doesn’t hurt a vinyl record. Put it into a dishwasher and you’re fine”. Billy Gibbons

“I spent two years living in London – I’d have stayed for ever if I could have got a work visa. It was there I started collecting vinyl and fell in love with the sounds of the 1970s”. Lady Starlight

“My kids love vinyl, I had to teach them how to put the needle on the records. Now they’re worried about scratching the records, but it’s incredible!”  Simon LeBon

“There’s no question that a vinyl record is a lot nicer than a CD. It’s nicer to hold in your hands, you can do more with it”. Simon LeBon

The Bad:

“I can assume that the younger generations will no longer know what vinyl was. Maybe some kids will take their CD back to the shop, telling the shop owner they have a faulty disc and if they could please get a new one”. Mike Rutherford

“People often forget this – a vinyl album could only contain a maximum of 20 minutes per side!”  Ken Hensley

“When we were making vinyl records we had a lot of time limitations for each record so songs were left off for a number of reasons. Now, with CDs, much more music can be included”. Ken Hensley

“It’s also ironic that in the old days of tape and tape hiss and vinyl records and surface noise, we were always trying to get records louder and louder to overcome that”. T Bone Burnett

The Unforgiven

 “I played a lot of acetates at the end of my vinyl period – I used to make tracks and get them pressed in four or five days – but the quality was always so bad and they would skip all the time. The vinyl days for me are over. I still buy vinyl, but only albums, and just to play. For DJing, vinyl is a nightmare”. Tiesto
