I'm bumping this thread to say that I just bought Dracula on vinyl and it sounds glorious!

Yes I have a vinyl rip of the Dracula LP and I sounds much better than the Varese CD.

But does it sounds better than the Master Tape?

It's a joke... of course, IT CAN'T ;)

Of course it can! Vinyl adds warmth to the recording!

Yes I know what vinyls lovers means when they talk about "warmth", in fact they speak about "distortion". ;)

What distortion? What saturation? You guys are talking about "tape". It's clear you're no hipsters!

For vinyl and Rosenman lovers (and for those who don't visit the LOTR subforum):

Leonard Rosenman's score for the Bakshi adaptation gets the deluxe treatment!

Fantasy Records presents the classic score to the 1978 animated feature J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, from Academy Award-winning composer Leonard Rosenman (East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, Barry Lyndon). This highly collectable, vinyl box set will be a must-have for fans of the landmark film and audiophiles alike. Inside the box, there is a wealth of ephemera to discover: the two-disc, 180-gram vinyl LP in a reproduction of the original gatefold jacket; an alternate movie poster, featuring Gandalf, reproduced from the film s original marketing materials; a map of Middle Earth; a lobby card, reproduced from the original theatrical release; plus a sticker, a reproduced production cel, suitable for framing, as well as a 16-page illustrated booklet, featuring behind-the-scenes photos, liner notes by Tolkien Enterprises Laurie Battle, and a new Leonard Rosenman appreciation by Jon Burlingame, the nation's leading writer on the subject of music for films and television. Also in the booklet is a backstage look at the making of the film by music historian and reissue producer Bill Belmont.

Sticker for the win!

Don't leave the window open, or a gentle breeze will distort the sound!

Gravity is a hipster film though!

Wouldn't you like to impress your friends by playing Gravity (of all records!) on a vertical turntable? It's not about sound. It's about how cool you are.

I assume the arm has to be spring loaded in some way to be able to stay in the groove. Would too much pressure not damage the LP though?
