    I was flipping through ebay and found some records for sale. I was surprised to find records of new and recent bands. Wow, I wonder why people would want a record over an cd? Dont know, so tell me.

    I think you have to own turntables to understand.

    Kinda like that old harley saying
    "If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand."

    Arrow I noticed that vinyl records are still being produced in small quantities,...

    and mostly from "boutique" or small-label concerns. F/I, I just scored a NEW vinyl LP of "Iggy Pop Live..." - at the so-and-so auditorium. It's an older recording, of an older show, [can't remember the date], but it's a NEW LP/vinyl record.

    I don't know why LP's or vinyl records are still being produced, since it goes against current trends, but it's okay with me. I still have my turntable hooked to my stereo in the "studio", in my case the home-studio is also known as the "office".

    Nowadays, vinyl records seem "different" and "cool", and they're definitely harder to find & not as common as they used to be. Still, that 12"x12" cover art can't be beaten! 5"x5" CD cover art just can't compare to the splendor of 12"x12"-LP cover art!

    You heard it here first!

    There are a LOT of underground 7"s that are only on vinyl.

    I don't know.......they are from the underground. They don't have much production value

    No really......I have a good deal of "newer" records. Some PearlJam and GreenDay and Nirvana. I can't compare them to the CDs though because I don't have both. I take that back......I do have the HeartShapedBox 12" and the InUtero CD, but I haven't listed to the 12" is years. But it does have Merigold on the B-side. Thats a song with Dave Grohl singing. I can't remember if they swapped guitar and drums.......anyways.......

    I am looking for the new JohnnyCash on LP because I found out it has 2 songs not on the CD.

    Starting to get the picture?


    Thought so.............

    I must say though.......newer LPs sound better than ones that got recorded back in the 70's and 80's.

    I was at my friends place who I didn't know had a great stereo system, turn-tables and everything..he pulled out some records from mid-80s of some of my fave music...THESE RECORDS ROCKED man...I swear, all of them sounded better than CDs, except for a few "record clicks" which are normal....OK, the guy's got a good system, but still...records rock!!
