I will be spending most of this weekend scrabbling around in the loft sorting through the 2,000 or so vinyl albums stashed away up there. I haven't owned a turntable for about 7 years when the CD finally won the war and I had to resort to sorting around the shops to recreate the back catalogue. Obviously not everything got replaced. Some were so obscure that they were not translated to CD, and some albums had just one standout track but didn’t warrant the exorbitant price being demanded for the whole album. Then, as the mp3 revolution arrived, the prospect of vinyl became even more remote... although folks down the pub were always passing on highly technical, and as such, useless advice about transferring vinyl to cdr and then on to the ipod.

But today… this arrived in the post and my life can be complete again.
