I love cds because I like actually having the PRODUCT per se , not something intangible like an mp3. That doesn't do it for me and I think its bogus

Vinyl does indeed sound terrific if you use a decent playback system. A 45 played on a kid's record player is not going to even come close to providing the same fidelity as a cd played even on a a cheap portable. I have both vinyl and cd (even 8tracks and reel to reels too) in my collection. Cd wins out for portability, and of course easier to make custom mixes and import stuff in to ipod's etc. But for serious listening, I'll take a well mastered vinyl over a cd.

to me records are meant to be played and listened to. No way would I frame a record. If I want to put something in a frame I will buy a painting

I have nothing against that but I would never frame my records. If it gets to a point where a copy wears out or something happens to it I will just locate another copy. To me thats part of the fun of record collecting

Another point in the cd vs. lp debate:
Lp's are about 42-45 min. in length, just the right amount of time for listening. Cd's are TOO LONG! Think how amazing your favorite cd's would be with only the best 8 or 10 songs. Not 17 songs. Cut the filler. Just more proof that in years past the music was important a coherent piece. Artists thought about play order and flow. Not how many potential singles they could cram into one package.
To me, everytime I hear; "Time", or "Money" on rock radio it sounds funny on it's own. Why? Because "Dark Side of the Moon" Is a timeless, seamless, piece of art; not a greatest hits disc.

(END OF RANT)

((P.S., about 1 500 lp's here))

The debut Jefferson Airplane record you speak of is called Takes Off, and its been released on CD, in fact the CD has bonus tracks.

I have that (Bowie) Mannish Boy material on CD. so never doubt. I have thousands of albums and thousands of cds. I'll never get rid of my albums but I've found much material on CD as well, including many things I thought would never see the light of day on CD. There is room for both in my life.

Of course vinyl is far better.
Richer, deeper sounds. Plus, it's hypnotic watching it slowly turn...
But, CDs are everywhere. You can't get new music on vinyl with any real ease and when you do, it's twice the cost. Added to how easily vinyl is destroyed, scratched, even spilling a drink on a piece of vinyl can ruin it forever.
CDs are just easier. I generally buy a CD of music that i want. I buy vinyl that i need!
i.e. Portishead 'Third', Radiohead 'In Rainbows etc etc
