Please join me in affirming what I failed to see the first time round, Prince's give away album via The Mail on Sunday absolutely rocks - all of it.
In part it could be because of a curve ball a friend threw at me via a video skype
"Hey man you're booked to go to China next year, around the Olympics".
"You alright with that?"
'Uh yeah, yeah, to do what!"
"You know talk IM6 Video Journalism and stuff".
But no, no no.
This is a stand alone gesture. The geek I am playing it at full blast on my Powerbook, led me to rummage through some oldies.
So join me once again upstanding to: Bobby Byrd, Bobby Womack, Living Colour - Cult of Personality, Cameo - Cameosis, Larry Young Fuels - Turn of the Light, Chocololate Milk - Actions speak louder than words, Expansion- Lonnie Liston Smith, Ohio Players- Pain, Stephanie Mill - Sweet Sensation - all fabulous tunes and part of 3000 odd LPs sitting behind me that I can't ****ing play because they're on vinyl and I don't have a frigginn deck.
Yeah I know I could get the CDs, MP3s whatever, but I'm ludditely attached to that feel of an old LP with a price maked £2.
What ! newspapers will go the way of Vinyl too and dissapear at some point? Really!
