There's something special about listening to music on vinyl that digital can't replicate. I'm not sure if it's just nostalgia or if the music actually sounds better as the record turns under the needle. There's nothing like thumbing through album after album, admiring the enlarged cover art that doesn't come on iTunes. Pulling a record from its sleeve and placing it onto the player has become one of my favorite daily rituals. Here I've put together a list of 12 albums you should own on vinyl -- one for each month of the year!
I used to pride myself on being able to find anything, music-wise. Give me a challenge. Name the oddest, most long out-of-print slab of vinyl and I could find it. I love brick and mortar record stores, obviously, but since the advent of iTunes and other downloading sites, I, like the rest of world, don't shop them so much anymore. And don't get me wrong, one-stop shopping is a good thing. I'm more likely now than ever before to take a chance on something.
I've been on a quest to find a few new music blogs to my newsreader, plus reconnect with some of the ones I've been neglecting for far too long. I discovered Power Pop Review through Last.FM. It's penned by one of my friends/contacts (who goes simply by Power Pop Review), and is a joy for those of who still love flipping through bins of musty vinyl.
