The Vinyl? Itís Pricey. The Sound? Otherworldly.

Here's the link to a NY Times article with the same title as the subject line about high end restoration of albums previously issued on vinyl:

Fascinating reading. I'll bet they are good, but most vinyl fans, me included, will be unable to stump up the high prices.

When I looked through their catalog of releases I thought of how when the original LPs were released they were affordable consumer quality records, albeit in genres in which the purchasers were listeners who truly cherished the music. I only checked the Riverside John Lee Hooker LP, but it's still available as a CD for $10. Even though the ERC products will never be within my budget, it's good that ERC is doing what they can to preserve the music in the highest quality possible.
