Choose Life, Choose Vinyl

Hello, A while ago I bought a Crosley Crusier Record Player from work for about £50 with discount and a voucher taken off. Bargain right? 

I’ve wanted a new record player for a while and liked the look of those players so decided to get one. I’ve got to say I love it, it looks good and sounds good. If you want to get a record player and don’t want to spend a small fortune then I recommend getting one. I also bought Prince – Purple Rain soundtrack along with the player as it was there, I’m a fan and have wanted it on vinyl for some time. As a kid growing up in the 80’s I was a fan of Prince and used to have vinyl back then. Being an 80’s kid as was a fan of Michael Jackson and Thriller is a classic so that was one I had to have. I kind of wish I kept the vinyl I had back then and I wouldn’t have had to start a collection all over again. After my first Prince purchase I bought The Stone Roses, Blondie – Parallel Lines and one of my all time favourite film soundtracks Trainspotting limited edition orange vinyl. I love that movie and soundtrack it brings back so many memories of the 90’s and being a teenager. The limited edition orange vinyl comes in orange vinyl form obviously and two records. It looks good and it’s right what people say vinyl sounds better. The soundtrack sounds so good on vinyl. So that was a good edition to my collection and I’ll be collecting more vinyl soon.

Rest In Purple

Hello, earlier today I got home from work and had a scroll through Instagram. I started scrolling and got to Travis Barkers post. It was a photo of Prince and when I read the caption I couldn’t believe it. Prince had passed away. I was genuinely shocked and couldn’t believe it, it was so out of the blue. This year has been a bad year for celebrity deaths. We’ve already lost, Alan Rickman, Lemmy and David Bowie. 

Ever since I first heard Prince’s music as a kid growing up in the 80’s I loved it and instantly became a fan. Purple Rain is one of my all time favourite songs. He’s made so many other great songs like When Doves Cry, Rasberry Berret, Little Red Corvette, Kiss, 1999 and all the songs from the Batman 1989 soundtrack which I love. His contribution and influence in music is massive and you can still see that influence now. 

It’s been a sad day for fans and the whole of music. Rest in purple Prince you will be missed, but the music lives on. 

Thanks for reading.
