Vinyl records are second best in terms of the sound accuracy and dynamic range. The album art is a big plus, too. You can find old singles for around $0.25 and albums for $1.00-$3.00 at Half-Price Books. I do hate having to change the needles when the treble starts to dissappear though. As weird as it sounds, I do enjoy cleaning my LPs once in a while.
Reel to Reel Tape recorders are the best tape format. I worked with these at my High School Radio Station and the user friendly editing was just awesome. You’d tape an entire lecture in a classroom and edit it with scissors and scotch tape and play it back on “Open Classroom” early on sunday morning. The big Pain in the @$$ was you needed to rewind the whole reel onto a Spare reel before playing and the end of the magnetic tape always became crunched.
Eight track tapes were pretty much the worst format, even though I have one in an old 8-Track recorder in an old Soundesign System that I still use. The 8-Track, even with my awesome 1956 Acoustic Research Speakers, Sounds no better or worse than AM Radio. Still, they make a great novelty.
Cassette Tapes are an okay format, I like how its so easy to record, re-record and play a tape. My Mom Gave me her old mixtapes a lonng time ago when she had them transfered to CD, theyre from the 70’s and 80’s, yet they sound as if they were recorded yesterday. They durability of a cassettes hard plastic case cant be matched either, no skipping, scratching or smudging like with CDs or wear-out, gouging or warping of a Vinyl Record. There still is the occasional tape salad problem, but my tape player rarely does that.
CDs are the best format when it comes to conveniance, ease-of-use, computer-compatability, and Sound Accuracy. Mix CD-R’s in my opinion are better than mixtapes. You can personalize the track listing and album art work easier than a cassette or vinyl. Not to mention that CD players and CD-ROM drives/CD Burners are nearly universal, where you can play you CD and you can even rip your CD’s to MP3 and put them on your iPod. You can even cram 8-10 albums on an MP3 CD-R and play it on most modern players. Sadly, discs can get scratched and smuged and then it may never play again.
MiniDiscs are the second best digital format when it comes to having the digital quality of a CD with the component recordability of the format and durability of a cassette tape. MiniDiscs can fit 60, 74 or 80 minutes of uncompressed PCM data or 2 to 4 hours using ATRAC encoding. I don’t record anymore on MD, but I still use it to play all my old mixes. Sadly, there was never a steady pre-recorded MD business in the US or Europe, I only own four myself.
iPod are the okay. Its nice to have my entire music collection on one devise. Though MP4s and MP3s do have a lower sound quality than CDs, MDs or Vinyl.
My verdict is CD>MD>LP>iPod>Tape>R2R>8-Track

He sings deep, he sings with soul, he sings from the heart. Great voice, great songs – “Magic”! At least you got the second part of the equation right!
What kind of a voice do you want to sing “Old Black Dodge” – Bocelli, Barry Manilow, or perhaps Justin Bieber!!?
Marc – the coach arrived late because a number of people on the coach were very drunk – resulting in the coach stopping for toilet breaks every 20 minutes. They broke parts of the coach, and one passenger was racist to the driver. You were on the coach so you know this is the case. The behaviour of the passengers was so bad that the coach company refused to pick them up, so we paid for another coach to bring our customers home instead – paying twice for one journey.
Fran, what festival did you travel to with us? We are 100% honest on our website and have NEVER changed our terms and conditions – to claim we have is libellous and most importantly – completely untrue. We have never broken the law, and we have also never failed to the deliver the service as advertised.
It’s good to see snoop dog up to something a bit more classy. The recent Calirfonia song w/ Katy Perry is a bit weird.
I loved your article.Really looking forward to read more. Great.
This Chico song is dreadful and desperate!
There is only one great England song that I`ve heard and that is `Green Fields of England` by George and the Dragons.
I don’t think that music really determines IQ, then how about those person who is not a music lover, maybe it is only observe by the traits/ character of musician, but it doesn’t mean that it is a valid reason.
i love that picture of him, he’s so hot
