Plural of Vinyl Is Vinyl

I have been hearing this more and more lately. It didn't drive me crazy until I figured out how widespread it really was. 
Just to clarify.

Vinyl Junkie Cartoon

My Garrard certainly delivers subliminal messages. Ever since I first fired up the 301 with the Hagtech Bugle I keep buying more and more records. I need more shelves.

Vinyl Documentary Trailer To Have And To Hold

I can't wait to see this documentary. If I don't see it at the Documentary Film Festival I'll buy the DVD. It looks really cool.

UK Soundway Records Releases Lost African Music

SoundwayRecords

My new favorite label for buying vinyl is Soundway Records. They are releasing very important music from Africa. The music is amazing and rivals anything else going on in the 70's. If you like highlife, afrobeat, funk, disco, Nigerian blues or African Jazz you have to check out this label. This music is amazing.

I never tire of this music. It is just one groove after another. This weekend I had a grillout party where I was spinning these Soundway Records. The music infectious everyone was asking about this music and dancing around. You just can't keep still while this music is on.

You can listen to a few samples here http://www.soundwayrecords.com/catalogue/nigeria-special-volume-2.html

The Microscopy of Vinyl Recordings

Ever since I scored the Garrard 301 I have become a vinyl junkie. Doing some reading at the vinyl engine I found this link to microoscopy of vinyl recordings.

I find this fascinating. All that beautiful music comes from these grooves.


The site also has some great detailed pics of stylus.


This is a great five page article.
