Note on the New Vinyl

I’m torn about this business of announcing “Look at me — a fancy, all-but one of a kind popular art object.” It isn’t as though there weren’t spiffy collectors’ releases back in the day. But when it’s a new edition of some humble old platter, however excellent, it’s an annoying presentation.

But what I am sure is absolutely wrong is that THE GODDAMNED THING HAS TO FIT INTO THE JACKET EASILY, not after an epic struggle.
