Description

The Vinyl Countdown - The story of the album - a talk with records by author Travis Elborough

In 1948 an invention was launched that was to change the world forever – the Long Playing vinyl record. Before then music came on 78s which were restricted to 4 minutes of scratchy sound per side. Artists suddenly had over 40 minutes to play with. The listener was able to kick back with the sleeve, and possibly a large martini in hand, and listen with uninterrupted pleasure.

Join Travis Elborough, author of The Long-Player Goodbye, as he explains how artists and record companies responded to vinyl records and charts their life and times, with the aid of a few discs from his own collection.
