De l'epoca quan podries escoltar el mateix LP 10 cops per dia. Quan miraries d'escoltar només la primera cara, i despres la segona. Quan els artistes no sentien l'obligació de ficar els "hits" com a primera pista, perque es fiaven de la paciencia dels fans. Quan sabies quina casa publicava els discs. Quan sabies qui tocava cada instrument. Obries el LP i llegies la lletra. Tenies unes portades xulissims, i grans (12 pulgars!). Feies intercanvis a l'hora del pati per poder fer copies (i no, no vam matar a la musica).
Script for a jester's tear - Marillion, del 1983.
Altogether now, "I'm losing on the swings ..."
Remember when you actually had to go out and buy music. When you listened to all the tracks on an LP, and sometimes 10 times a day! When you knew what was on Side One, and what as on Side Two. When groups didn't feel the need to put their Super Hit as track one. When you knew which record company the groups were on, and who played every instrument. LP covers 12 inch square in full colour for our enjoyment. Lyrics inside. Swapping LPs at school to copy your mate's - and music didn't die!
