What is your favorite format?

Well?
Ain't got no woman next to me,
I just got this magazine,
And what's on the TV screen,
But that's okay with me,

  • Oh well! I have a personal list of favorites, in order of appearance:
    • 1. 10-inch albums
      2. 7-inch E.P.s
      3. 12-inch albums
      4. 7-inch singles
    No 78s, I can't play 'em!

I stick to 33 1/3 LPs mostly. I have a fair amount of singles (both 7" and 12", varying sizes of EPs too) but I've always been an album kind of person because I like the hidden gems that sometimes never got radio play or much recognition, so even if I only know a band for one song, I still like to listen to the whole album. I also like covers, find LPs easier to store (despite the difference in size), and on average, they are simply in better condition (most people just kept their singles in a big, friction-happy stack.

    • Firstly, Welcome to the 'Guild' my "friend"! We appreciate each new member who's seriously interested in (vinyl-) records.

      Regarding you statement about 45's; how about all these marvellous 7-inch 45 only releases?! . Image
      Gosh! You don't know what you're missing.

45s are my preferred format because 99.99% of the great recordings from the rock and roll era are only on 45

78s for me!! There's just something about them that excites me more than any other format. I love the fact that they are so brittle and have even survived at all but mainly it's the sound and history that I can't get enough of!!
