Why vinyl still matters

Reverb.com has this interview with Henry Rollins on why vinyl still matters to music and to fans.

Henry Rollins was barely out of his teens when he joined the legendary punk band . Since parting from the band in 1986, Rollins has found success as a spoken word artist, author, actor, and television and radio presenter. He currently hosts a weekly radio show on KCRW, and is a regular columnist for LA Weekly and Rolling Stone Australia.

Is vinyl important? And if so, why?

I can only answer for myself. Vinyl is important to me because what’s on it is real. It is what the musicians wanted you to hear. Whether what is on the record is to your liking doesn’t matter. They were able to tell you their truth, and you are able to evaluate it on a level playing field. There is no such thing as ‘digital music’. Digital technology can emulate music and that technology is getting better, but there is no  on a Led Zeppelin CD. There isn’t a nanosecond of music on any music streaming service.

What does a record provide that other formats do not?

Full frequency. There’s a reason records sound better. There is simply Let`s see on them.

Why did vinyl fade as a format during the time of CDs?

Many reasons. I am sure Let`s see than I know of, but here are a few that come to mind.
