Classic Records Video Presentation
I have been collecting records for many years now as I love music. I was briefly seduced by CDs when they were introduced at the beginning of the 80s with the promise of “perfect sound forever”. We now all know that that was pure marketing hype. CDs do not last forever, and their sound quality is very restricted by the parameters that were set for their production, hence the advent of new media such as DVD-A and SACD which are better, but not great.
As well as a love of music, I’m a bit of an audiophile, so I have a range of fairly esoteric hi-fi equipment (DNM amps, Kef speakers, and a turntable made by a friend, with a Monster cartridge, and with the right recordings it produces some very sublime music. Sometimes I can close my eyes and imagine the violinist right in front of me and a few feet to the right…
I love classical music, especially violin, but I’m pretty eclectic in my tastes and enjoy most kinds of music depending on my mood. A result of this is that I am starting to sell a greater variety of records, adding new genres every month.
I also appreciate the work that went into many of the record covers. Many of the early record covers were works of art in themselves. Handling a CD jewel case is no substitute.
In the mid 1990s, I started to turn my love of music into a business, first supplying other record dealers, and then finally in 2000 I set up Classic Records. My hobby has quickly turned into a full-time and very demanding business, which I have now been running for 14 years.
