So I only recently got into collecting Vinyl (thanks Stalls for getting me a copy of TGA's 59 Sound Single Gold) and I am really glad that I did.
Less than a month ago, I never really got the appeal of listening to a record, it seemed out dated and pointless, but I just read this interview by Chris #2 from Antil-Flag and I think this part really sums up Vinyl:
"The future of the music industry isn't really a concern of mine. We were a band long before a music industry cared about us, we will be a band long after it does. Vinyl is the only place people are finding emotional attachment to their music, because it's a sit down and listen piece, you have to choose that piece, it's not at the touch of a click wheel on an iPod, or in your car. It's a real choice to devote time to that music."
