Delicious Vinyl

25 08 2009

Looking for some Rolling Stones tunes on youtube, I stumbled across this user, WABC77.   He has a really interesting approach: he plays great old songs on vinyl, recording the removal of the disk from the sleeve and it spinning/playing on the turntable.   More interesting than his gimmick, if you will, is the amazing sound of the vinyl.  I’ve not heard music on vinyl in a decade at least.  I don’t profess to be an audiophile.  So the crispness, clarity and warmth of these records really took me by surprise.   The Stones’ song, “19th Nervous Breakdown” is one of my favorite among his collection.

If you’d like to check out the rest of his youtube videos, look here.
