Vinyl is, to my ears, the superior format for rock.
It is warmer, richer, less tinny and less grating than digital.

Example: "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out" by the Rolling Stones.
This 1969 New York show is still my favorite live rock performance. Play it loud!

Then came the digital CD version...

It was truly horrible. Cold, tinny, choppy and sterile.
It was so bad, the record company released it again as an SACD - simulated analog CD.

We ditch our record players and LPs, only to have the record company try to recreate
the experience we had in the first place!
