Nothing beats the feel, size, smell, sight and sound of vinyl. So easy to chuck out those CDs, ripped to the computer. But vinyl is for life; the vinyl years stay with you and contain a whole history. So the old stuff is here, from the classic to the tragic — mistakes and finds.
When I scan my eye across those spines I can hear the songlines and remember the great bands, from the Beatles to the Clash, from those who led the way like Dylan to those who feel like contemporaries, such as Billy Bragg.
