My Neil Young Vinyl Collection
As one might imagine, we get all sorts of fun stuff from Neil fans around the world.
Here's one to share...
I thought I'd share with you a video I made a couple weeks ago for YouTube, of me showing off my Neil Young vinyl collection- which I am extremely proud of. You may have seen this video on FaceBook's Rust Community, where I shared it. There is a whole community of vinyl fanatics on YouTube, of which I am a part of, and this is basically what we do - show our latest finds, post and respond to threads, etc.
There are a lot of Neil fans among us. It's a really cool thing, with some great people, from which I have discovered so much great music.
So I had a bit of free time this morning (excuse the messy hair!). Perhaps redundant but I made another video of my Neil Young vinyl collection but a short version, all in one video which is what I should have done to begin with. I have about six videos in all, dedicated to my Neil LPs in which I explain my feelings for each one (see them on my channel if interested). I figured for people who don't want to sit through all those videos, I'd make a short one. I am really proud of this collection and it took a while so compile and took a good chunk of change.
I'm a huge fan of vinyl and just feel that Neil Young's music sounds best on that format- which is how Neil meant it to be heard. Not sure if you are a collector, but when you listen to these albums on a good turntable, you understand why Neil prefers analog over digital- and as good as ultrahigh resolution 24-bit /192 kHz stereo sound is, I feel (just my opinion) it still doesn't compare to the warmth and nuance, that vinyl can provide with a clean LP and a half-way decent turntable.
Anyway, I don't mean to go off on a vinyl vs. digital tangent, just thought I'd share my Neil collection, which took a lot of time and money to compile - it really is a labor of love. Hope you enjoy.
And if you what to hear my thoughts on each album, check out my channel ( http://www.youtube.com/user/MrFartboy79?feature=mhum ) where I posted about six videos going over Neil's discography - just click "See All" on my videos because they were posted months ago.
Thanks Thrasher and keep up the good work. Despite everything, you truly do provide not only a service of "Neil News" and connecting us all, but entertaining and thought provoking content to us Neil "fanatics".
Also, looking forward to the tour? Can't wait!
Very cool Tony! Nice to put the face with the handle.... messy hair and all... :)
