I may just blip vinyl all year – today’s album, The Smiths The Queen is Dead. God I loved this album as an angst ridden teenager. Morrissey went on to become a self parody but here his lyrics were at their finest – it’s a very witty album in places despite the miserable tag.
My latest vinyl (re)acquisition is The Stone Roses. I think this was the last time I was really obsessed by music. It’s worth having on vinyl because, as we discovered when a bit worse for wear in Kingston in 1990, if you play Don’t Stop backwards it is the preceding track, Waterfall.
And here is the turntable I bought – has some ok built in speakers but connects to my Bose & sounds pretty good.
Bought myself a turntable & picked up a couple of vinyl albums today. This means buying albums for 20 quid which I used to own. There was something lovely about reliving the experience of turning a record over, choosing a side, reading the sleeve notes, etc.
