I, personally, am MUCH too young to remember “big size albums” and absolutely 100% don’t still have the Consumers Distributing turntable on which some people played Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt and Poco albums (both sides) nonstop and obnoxiously sang along at full blast to get over that jerk in Russell House who only danced with your roommate for the ENTIRE frosh party.
No, not me.
But I have heard through the grapevine that EVERYTHING sounds better on vinyl so I can only imagine (see what I did there? heh) how mind-blowing a Postcards in the Sky vinyl will be.
If you’ve already picked one up at a show… please share how amazing it is!
And praise be that it will be available on the OS!!! IT’S LIKE CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!!!!!
Watching David open a vinyl album like it’s some ancient artifact from prehistoric times was well, hiLARious… but seeing his enthusiasm over such a retro, hipster throwback absolutely made my day.
It also made my day that he’s “just checking in” every now and then… no more, no less… just checking in… LOVE IT!!!!
A lovely fan friend who shall remain nameless sent me these very true words (hope she doesn’t mind me sharing 🙂 🙂 🙂 ):
Sat here thinking….right now in the old days maybe he’d still be “waiting for clearance from the big guys” to decide if “vinyl was a good investment…good idea…doing market research first”…instead….boy is FREE free freeeeeee to be as happy as he is in this little ole ADORABLE (did I mention that?) IG post!
SOOOOOO, WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK??!!! AND HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU WATCHED THE VIDEOOOOOO?? 🙂
I thought this tweet was appropriate for this post. 🙂
Today while giving high school students a tour of the Archives one asked what the microfilm reader was. He then realized "Oh, that's what people use in horror movies to find out the scary history of the town." WHAT. A. HOT. TAKE.
