    Can anyone help me on this?

    I know Lionheart, The Inner Sanctum and Heavy Metal Thunder were available on vinyl, but were any other the others since Forever Free?

    The only good thing about the cassette was making a mixtape for somone now that was a true artform.

    That was an art form. Chopping off the first bars, leaving to big a gap, it took a real skill!

    Still buy Vinyl whenever I can as it still looks and sounds the business. Get the CD's as well mind you!

    You also had to listen to the songs.Not like when you burn a cd .I still have a tape player in my car for that reason.Sad i know.When people made a tape they had to take a couple hours out of their time to do it.So for that reason you knew that; a, they loved that song, or b they thourght you would love that song.Mind you like you say to cue up a song in the middle of an album was a pain in the ass.:lol:

    The last Saxon album i bought on vinyl was Forever Free, and i only got it on vinyl as well as cd cos i liked the cover, with the robot people on futuristic motorbikes etc.
    I don't miss vinyl at all really, i hated records jumping when i walked pased the record player, and i hated the crackles, and records can get scratched quite easy.
    And as for tapes, good ridance. I dont even have a video anymore, i have a dvd recorder instead :kickass:

    I've always preferred vinyl myself. It was with great reluctance that I finally accepted that hardly anyone releases anything on vinyl these days, and started buying CD's instead :( I didn't know Lionheart and The Inner Sanctum were available on vinyl!!!

    You can get The Inner Sanctum from Nuclear Blast's website, which is where I still buy a lot of my vinyl from.

    It does the artwork justice and looks so much better than the cd.

    I agree with you that the large album cover shows the artwork much better, but at the end of the day, i want to listen to the music without crackles and stylus jumping etc. I also like to rip cd tracks and put them on my mp3 player e.t.c.

    But i know there are still some vinyl enthusists out there, and thats fine by me, but times are changing, and i love new technology...:)

    B.T.W. i have about 150 vinyl albums, but i rarely play them, cos i have a lot of them on cd now.

    I cherish my LPs purely because of the artwork, i dont play mine either, i no longer have a vinyl compatable device that can play them lol

    As for videos, have not used one of those machines in years, dont own one either, despite that i do have alot of home movies and good stuff on some tapes that i would like to record to dvd one day, when i can be arsed.

    I know what you mean. I have a mini DV video camera, and i put all my recordings on to DVD. The quality is a lot better than VHS tapes!

    I also have quite a lot of VHS movies, and if i want to watch one i just use my parents video, but thats not often, as im trying to increase my DVD collection :)
