Reords Over Time

I found this to be both very interesting, and somewhat depressing, as in the 80s I BUILT my recording collection above 400 cassette tapes, and 100 albums.  I resisted CDs for a decade, while Dr Desert Flower enthusiastically abandoned the cassette paradigm in favor of the CD, and then quickly made the leap to downloads once she got her first MAC.  I hope the GIF automates here...
I bought my first album - Styx, Grand Illusion, at the Venture store (now bankrupt chain or retail) that was within walking distance of my home in 1978, just 3 years prior to the start of this GIF.

  1. What I think is the most depressing is that a quality LP vinyl record will sound the best and most natural of all of them when played on a true hi-fidelity stereo system. No digital harshness or compression or artifacts. Sound is analog and its reproduction is best that way too. Notice how LP rebounds from 0.1% to a whopping 1.3%. Unfortunately the best is not always the most practical. It is difficult to carry hundreds of records around with you everywhere and impossible to play them in the car.
