Finally got my record player up and running this week, hurrah! It's been way too long but all I needed was a crucial wire.Why did I put it off for so long?! I've really missed it. For me vinyl is a whole different listening experience. I love the slight crackle of the needle, the whole process of slipping the record out of it's sleeve and popping it on and also the fact that the album cover is bigger means the art work can be appreciated more.
The first record I put on? Well, it had to be 'Let It Bleed', although I did promise myself 'Rumours' by Fleetwood Mac but the stones called out to me, ha ha!
As a record player isn't exactly portable, it means I can't take it up to my studio, so instead my trusty DAB radio accompanies me when I'm working on shop orders. One tune I've particularly liked listening to on Radio 6 this week is Go by Public Service Broadcasting. It's utterly gorgeous and makes my heart tremble.
