I’d love to turn you on to some of the albums that I consider to be essential. I heard most of my favorite recordings in their original vinyl form. If you still own a turntable, search the local record shops and bring home a few gems. If you prefer CDs, that’s cool too.
And, if you prefer to obtain your tunes via the Internet, please consider downloading an artist’s or band’s entire album. That way you’ll be able to enjoy the full musical experience of the album, the way the artist intended.
