the sheer sumptuous simple beauty of…a record

Did you ever notice that you have to get up to flip the record? You can’t just load up two hours’ worth of music in your playlist and ignore. A record demands to be tended to.

The warmth of the sound from a vinyl record has a nostalgic or intimate quality to it that seeps into the heart and soul. Maybe emotion only carries over analog waves?

It’s like that old Naked music song “Music and Wine” — music and wine were the only friends of mine. Maybe not your style of music but everyone has felt that at some point in their lives. Sometimes even if they’re not the only friends we have, they are still some of the best.

A quiet evening at home with some records. Is there really anything better?
