The 1960s and 1970s were a period of great musical originality, a time of contrasts, and of major developments of many new musical genres – although there were as yet no CDs, Internet, MP3 players, smartphones or associated social networks. Social networking existed, however, but functioned very differently in those days. People celebrated vinyl discs together, since they provided fans with the most readily attainable access to the world of music.
Each album was filled with magical musical moments, captured in the studio in an unrepeatable manner. At that time, processing possibilities that are a matter of course today were the dreams of visionaries, however scarcely anyone could have imagined a digital world. Nevertheless, the legendary vinyl disc survives to this day, perhaps because everyone feels that its originality conveys almost forgotten but unique artistic values.
The unprecedented renaissance of vinyl records, supported by musicians who are rediscovering the feeling and authenticity of the production technology of past times, is a sign of the longing for something that is genuine and unique, vital and unrepeatable.
