Hi all

Check out this blog by Kirk McElhearn on the future of the music album.

I love albums and reckon they have a future, if only because I think most people realise that albums are carefully crafted experiences (well, the good ones are!). Also, in my experience, after a few listens your favourite song on an album isn't the song you bought it for.

My daughters gave me the new Gotye album for Christmas – on vinyl! That made me hook up the turntable again, and I'm now enjoying all my old LPs again – particularly the jazz ones I got from the amazing 'black' jazz shops in Jo'burg in the '80s.

Cheers
Dave

PS: The Gotye album is brilliant.

Wow vinal, now that's cool, you can't beat the hiss and the odd jump, you get from playing old albums, it brings back great memories. But to be honest, I haven't bought an album since iTunes came out, I got pretty close to buying Adele's latest album, but then backed out. But I will be pre ordering Roberta Flacks new album "let it be", so I guess that will be the first time in a long time I wil break with tradition.

What's Vinyl.....??? Ha ha

I remember Vinyl and tapes...lots of them...those were the days....but I have to say... I love digital, and how it's so easy to purchase music and whack it on your iPod/iPhone etc.

Dave i still buy Vinyl mainly for Jazz and classical albums.
It is surprising what appears in garage sales. In fact the other week i picked some Miles Davis which were in pristine condition and the Japanese recording of Santana's "Lotus* concert in Tokyo 1974.

I buy all my music from iTunes. But when it comes to quality of sound you can't beat vinyl. I plan on getting a turntable and purchasing all the Nirvana albums and maybe some Beatles too.

Fantastic finds, Gordon. One of the LPs I resurrected was Santana's Abraxas, an absolute classic from 1970.

Dave that is a real classic, one you might enjoy is Russo street Music, three pieces for blues band and orchestra.
Interesting combination of Corky Siegel (better known as a bluegrass harmonica player), San Francisco Symphony Orchestra conducted by the Japanese conductor Seiji Ozawa.
On Deuche Grammphon 463 665-2
It regularly gets a play on the ABC Jazz digital station.
