“More than one million vinyl records have been sold in the UK so far this year” reads the headline. While there are many reasons why this is the case – read the article – for me, these three are key,
“Some records, I like the way they degrade. It’s like a photograph fading, it’s part of the whole beauty of vinyl.” [said Nigel House, co-founder of the Rough Trade retail chain]
Mr Castaldo from the BPI agreed. “The difference between vinyl and other formats is that it’s viewed as an art form, really – the audio quality, the sleevenotes, the cover art.
“Whilst other formats are being superseded every time technology improves, vinyl doesn’t really fit into that category because it’s more than that.” link
Blogs are a bit like the vinyl of the Internet, certainly of the social media world. Or maybe they’re just the tape cassette of it.
