GREAT blog...I found you while searching for fellow vinyl-obsessed bloggers (mine's www.turntabling.net) and dropped you some blog love:

Your LPD rant from four years back is hilarious...and the Neil Diamond cover is, well, so misguided and wrong that it should be blown up to poster size. How would you like THAT face staring at you day and night? You could hang it side by side with those scary 1970s country music portrait album covers and create your own pancake makeup freakshow.

But I digress....great blog. More please.
