Trying To Keep Vinyl Alive


On a recent trip to my favorite record store {Amoeba Records}, I was astonished at the lack of current Hip Hop 12 inches...........This had never happened before.....I have been going there on a constant since 1999, and I alway's walked out of there with a gang of new shit........I know, I know, your probably thinking why and the hell is this fool still buying records?......It's because my father was a D.J., and I have a sentimental relationship with wax...........And it just sounds better than Serato to me...If I didn't have between 8000-10,000 {stopped counting} records to fuck around with, Serato would of been my obvious alternative...........This is no diss to my Serato rocking D.J.'s........Some of my closest friends are monsters on that Serato shit.......I just never really felt the need to abandon certain traditions that were passed down to me {Diggin}...........But if my last trip 2 "Amoeba", is a indicator of what's to come........."Mr Keep Vinyl Alive", might have to rethink some things.....................

The collectibility of vinyl alone will keep it alive for a long time, the covers and inserts just make vinyl a must have for real music fans. For example Isaac Hayes Black Moses, Led Zep Physical Graf, Jethro Tull Thick as a brick are must haves for the covers alone. But at times I do feel like one of those cat ladies (no homo) always rescuing cats and up to their neck in shit.
