The Vinyl Issue: Welcome To Record Paradise

null

For a format that was declared dead years ago, vinyl is in surprisingly rude health. More than that – it’s the real sound of 2015.

Join us as we celebrate the resurgence of the 12-inch disc of plastic as cultural touchstone, and the source of some of the greatest music ever recorded.

From extreme vinyl collecting to the success of Record Store Day, this is everything you need to know about vinyl in the 21st century.

And at the heart of it all are the 250 albums you must own on vinyl, featuring everyone from big-hitters (Zeppelin, Sabbath, Purple) to cult heroes (Karen Dalton, Gene Clark, Gaye Bykers On Acid), from LPs with classic side As (hello The Doors, The Stooges, U2) to triple-album craziness (we mean you, Godley & Creme).

And somewhere in there, you’ll find the most OTT piece of vinyl ever made.

Here’s what you’ll find in our love letter to the greatest of all formats…
