i love vinyl!
Well, i don't do it as often as i used to , to be sure.
But there's nothing like the thrill of walking down the steps into a basement record shop with money in your pocket to spend on a potential score. I think the smell that slowly fading vinyl emits must be universal. I bet if I was to walk into a record store anywhere in the world, it would strike me as familiar, and instantly send me into a nostalgic swirl of musical memories.
Anyway, today I ventured into a shop in my hood that i have ridden by many times. After flipping for a few minutes and being tempted at times to commit to the likes of kate bush and a smiths single, I intuitively sensed that there was still greater treasure to be found- if i just gave it more time...
and I did. and I scored. (in MY mind!) I adore the 4AD label and have an ongoing quest to find old releases. Today I got a This Mortal Coil that I have not seen before. Pretty happy!!!
