Even though today you can now carry an entire music library in the palm of your hand, musicians and music lovers are bringing back the vinyl LP. It’s about the sound quality, but also its beauty as an object, complete with large format cover art, liner notes and lyrics. And a machine known as the Voice O Graph–a novelty booth popular in the 40s and 50s which pressed a sixty second recording on the spot–are also coming back, thanks to one local
collector’s devotion. We explore the revival of vinyl with local experts.
