    I still have the original vinyl. I had such a crush on Cat Stevens as a teen.

    Vinyl is quite the thing these days! My son and husband are both into it. My husband spends his money on needles for his original turntable, and my son bought a brand new turntable - cause, yes, they're making them again!

    I wish Cat Stevens was still sane. He was awesome.

    And we're told Republicans are the party of old, white (fe)males.

    As someone who grew up with vinyl, I don't miss it one bit.

    Skips, pops, hissing, difficulty changing songs, having to flip the record to listen to the other side ... who wouldn't miss all that?

    ;)

    CD and MP4 is the way to go. Obviously sound quality is better on CD but it all sounds the same through $20 Earpods anyway.

    you left out the part about the cat taking a flying leap from floor to top of baby grand piano where a 33rpm album had been left atop --not in-- its jacket, awaiting the random engravings of a 20-point landing, or in the case of my six-toed wonder, a 24-point one.

    LOL "the art of it all" was about all that was left.

    having long since got used to compressed formats i sometimes miss the more open sound of analog recordings of certain classical works. A digital recording of certain works can remind me of sitting in one of those listening booths for some reason; transparent little cages inside bricks and mortar music shops.

    I agree. I still have albums I bought in the 60's. I'd rather listen to mp3s.
