Who still listens to vinyl?
I feel more like a part of the music when I listen to vinyl instead of MP3s.
- ccostello3, CNN iReport producer
I love music that's way before my time, and when I listen to it on vinyl I feel more in tune with the era in which it was produced. Sort of like a time machine. I can put on the Beatles and feel like I'm in the revolutionary '60's, or listen to some Madonna and imagine I'm in the decade of leg warmers and neon clothing. I love the experience of listening to music in the exact format it was originally produced in, because I know that when the artist recorded the albums, they intended for them to be played on vinyl records, not flat MP3s. And the little bit of audience participation that vinyl warrants (i.e. flipping to the b-side) makes me feel like part of the music, not just a listener.
