Listening to LPs lately, I’ve come to realize that one side of a record is just about all I want to hear of an artist in one sitting. Full CD albums are too long. I like the format of 20 minutes by one artist, then go to the next LP.
A side of an LP is often a cohesive musical journey. An entire CD wears me out. I think we’ve lost more than than just analog fidelity when we let the industry move away from vinyl records.
