I spent almost $104 on new and used vinyl in support of National Record Store Day. Recently, I started buying vinyl again. Something that I hadn't done since I was a kid. Now before you think I am old, (which I am not) I have been an audiophile since I was a toddler. The first album I owned was "1999" by Prince. My dad had given me a crate full of albums which included gems like Whitney Houston, Rick Springfield, Bruce Springsteen, Journey etc. Sadly, my mom threw all my albums away as my turntable bit the dust, and everything was going to CD. It wasn't until I met my wife that I started wanting to buy albums again after she showed me that she still had her collection which had stuff like Simon and Garfunkle, Elton John, The Cars etc. Music on vinyl to me meant more than that of owning cd's. Not only was the sound much more superior, but you also had the extra's like liner notes and you could also appreciate the artwork and photography better on vinyl then you could on CD.
That's why if I ever decided to use my photography or art for an album cover, it better be on vinyl as it would mean more to me, as I feel it's a big accomplishment to have your work featured on vinyl.
