More Vinyl

Last night I had a look around and saw that Iron Maiden's album "The Final Frontier" has been released as a limited edition 12" LP, so I made it my job today to find that LP.

Luckily enough my first stop, Jumbo Records (an independant music store in Leeds) had it in stock. I snapped that up rather quickly along with a copy of Street Sounds Nu Electro vol.2.





Earlier I'd had a notion that the quality of music on the turntable was meh because of the stylus, and when I took it off I saw that it was caked in gunk and the cartridge was rusted. I bought a new cartridge and stylus from Jumbo Records too and it's made a huge difference!

The actual LPs for The Final Fronter look incredible too! Each side has album artwork printed on it. :D



Currently I'm listening to the Nu Electro record. Fantastic ch00nage. :D

Presumably, the vinyl blank is made up with the image on and then the track is pressed into it? I would imagine doing otherwise would muck up the track.
