Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

Well there you have it.

If you are basing your vinyl listening to picture disks, then you've got a really jaundiced sample.

You need good quality black vinyl to get the best experience.

I recently bought the first of the Beatles Vinyl Collection partwork, which was Abbey Road, my absolute favorite Beatles album. This has been recently re-mastered, and the pressing is on 180gm hich quality vinyl, and it's really refreshing to listen to such a good pressing. Unfortunately, they re-mastered from the original master tapes, and I find the top end a bit muted, and I notice that the cymbals in tracks like Something and Here Comes the Sun have just disappeared compared to previous pressings.

It's a shame that the series was going to be so expensive. £17 for a single album and £25 for a double album is a bit too much.. Over all, it would have cost over £450 for the entire collection.
