COVER STORY – A vinyl exhibition by Base FM DJs

Written by on October 18, 2016



“We hold certain pieces of vinyl in higher regard than others.
Is it the first record you bought, or is it your favourite LP with the gatefold cover?
Which one never leaves your bag? Which one never leaves the house?
Which one took the longest to find? Which one did you inherit from you parents collection?
Every record tells a story..”

I first listened to this record when I was about 14. My brother was out and I put it on, I lay back on his bed and zoned out to the music. I remember the sun on my face and the peace I felt. It was a real musical experience and I was totally captivated by the sound. Since that time I have listened to this record many times. I still get real pleasure out of it.
