Are those Throbbing Gristle albums reissues or originals? Either way, I jelly.

I would really like to own a copy of 20 Jazz Funk Greats.

This isn't true, maybe a source to validate this claim?

Yeah, this isn't true at all.

I don't have any sources to cite. But this is the impression I have gained.

Here's a great online electronic music magazine.
http://www.residentadvisor.net/

I posted links to two online record shops earlier. Check out the review section and see how many are available in vinyl.

I like the idea of vinyls, but I am in no way ever going to run around saying "IT SOUNDS BETTER ON VINYL!", because really, who cares? Music is music, I can listen to it in low quality mp3, or in high quality .wav format, or whatever. Either way, I'll enjoy it. .mp3 doesn't sound bad anyway.

I collect vinyls, or am starting to, rather. I only have four at the moment, but I do plan on getting more as time goes. It is expensive, but it will be something to be proud of one day.
I unfortunately do not have a vinyl player though, nor do I ever really plan on getting one to be totally honest, maybe one day, once I have more vinyls. But eh, I'm fine with CDs and using my computer as far as the listening of music goes.


Yeah, whatever.

it is true in a lot of cases! the electronic scene has a massive vinyl culture, so there's hundreds of releases. give me an artist and i can probably find something they've put on wax

You're probably right. Maybe I'm just confusing indie with electronic.

I buy vinyl because i feel it's better value for the money. It demands more attention and respect. It prevents the music from being background bullshit.

plus, hipster bitches love it.
