I remember how buying a vinyl record was THE BEST thing I could do.
I spent half of my first salary (which I wont even say how tiny it was) on a LP (that is 'long playing').
I have not bought any vinyl for such a long time, but I have kept my entire collection as it is a form of telling my story.
Music is such a great way to retrieve memories from deep within.
There are still many a devotee who honours the look and sound and ceremony of playing vinyl on a record player.
Italy has never gotten over vinyl, you can find some amazing record stores still in Rome and Bologna and I imagine elsewhere.
