    This whole thing actually reminds me that I really need to find the time to hook up my USB turntable and start getting my records all converted to digital while they are still playable.

    And there can be some great rewards after that. Some CD or
    streaming versions are not like the original LP releases.

    One of the tracks on, Chris de Burgh's Spanish Train and Other
    Stories LP features a longer ending and a special effect near
    the end. That ending is not found on alternate media.

    A friend of mine noticed the ommission too and said, "Chris de
    Burgh's " A Spaceman Came Travelling" has a neat
    instrumental after a pause at the end of the track that is on
    the LP but is missing from the CD. It always annoyed me very
    much because I thought is was key to the song."

    Wednesday's, Last Kiss, the harmonies sound very different on
    the 45 RPM version which I have compared to the Spotify
    version.

    Of my 1100 LPs, a few dozen are surely unique and not found on
    alternative media. It would be cool to have some of them
    digital so that they could be more portable and be able to que
    them up at a whim of the moment.

    Paul Weller's debut solo CD has a "vignette" between two of the tracks
    that's the sound of a needle hitting the parking track, the resonation of someone lifting a turntable's dust cover, taking the needle off, flipping
    the record, placing the needle back on the record and closing the dust
    cover. I'd taped the CD to listen in my car and thought I'd been really
    sloppy recording it!
