There's Nothing Like Vinyl

November 7, 2012

Explaining why I love vinyl in a BBC TV Special on vinyl recordings

I've just finished shooting a BBC TV Special on vinyl recordings. I still make vinyl recordings on every record that I can. I went into my basement and found some amazing recordings. Everything from my very first CHIC record all the way up to my current video game soundtracks. There's Nothing Like Vinyl.


On a vinyl recording I can tell where the breakdown comes by looking at the grooves on the disc

I always cut vinyl to get a bigger sound
