Currently cultivating a superficial LP collection (as my acquisitions are based soley on cover art alone) from thrift store scavenging but am a without a doubt a novice.
Although I do not own a record player(yet!), family memories of carefully curated playlists for gatherings&celebrations reverberate through my headspace on an endless loop.
As you stated so eloquently in this video, when everything is seemingly disposable&immediate, how do we know what is meant to be treasured?
Still remember that afternoon at the record store when I glimpsed an album title that mirrored that of the book on my nightstand.
Upon further examination,definitely not ,as the images that accompanied the album title left no wiggle room in terms of reference.
The genre, the band's prior discography, none of this was a consideration as i was irrefutably intrigued by what they had to say when they weren't soley limited to an album title or photo.
This was the first time in fact that I noticed a musical artist wrapping an album in historical and literary significance to which i could directly relate .
Will anyone in the future buy an entire album?
Or buy one for the cover art alone when the end result is the size of a postage stamp on their chosen media device?
