i totally agree with everything you’re saying. i meant “sound on vinyl” as the pops and whisps and crackles. THAT sound, not necessarily a superior sound.i would say, oh, don’t support the bootleggers!, but i just don’t care anymore about that. it’s up to the consumer. personally, i just walked away. no need for that vinyl in my collection.although, i might pick up a copy just to document on this site. hmmm….
