AGremlin: When I was a kid, I had a lot of vinyl. I hated it as it was such a pain in the @$$ to maintain. I had the cleaning fluid, the static gun, non scratch cleaning pad, and needle brush. You'd get one scratch on your record and you were farked. You really had to treat each record like....well.....an easily scratched piece of plastic. I would make tapes, with dolby a/b noise reduction and they were never excellent sound quality.When CDs came into being, loved them and got rid of most of my albums. Still have some, just for the cover art. Now with downloadable music, will never go back to vinyl. My brother in law raves about the sound quality of vinyl, but he's too young to have grown up with it. The convenience of downloadable music makes up for the loss of sound quality IMHO.
radarlove: I am not near a record store, because I do not live in Portland.I am, however, near a bad of weed. Happy 4/20, everyone!

buckler: On a side note, I had a Philip Glass album that had a skip, and didn't realize it for nearly 20 minutes.
