Not as extensive as Jay Taruc's elaborate answers but quite interesting in a number of parts.

1. How and why did you get into vinyl records?
I was finally able to find a turntable that I really liked. For a time, I was mostly buying vinyl for childhood nostalgia. It was only recently that I found for myself that the sound quality really was a far cry from all the other formats.

2. What do vinyl records give you that CDs or MP3s cannot?
Vinyl still retains that mystique of the record buying lifestyle. It makes me appreciate the music more.

3. How many vinyl records do you have so far?
Less than a thousand as far as I can tell.


4. What are your top 3 all-time favorite vinyl records? Are these the 3 featured in “Sugod” (i.e., Beatles box set, Elvis box set and GNR box set?)
It varies. Right now in terms of sound it's still The Beatles box set, the Clash's “London Calling” and Miles Davis' “Kind of Blue.”

5. What are the top 3 must-have vinyl records in your tracking/wish list?
Michael Jackson's “Off the Wall,” The Beach Boys' “Sunflower,” The Cure's “Head on the Door.”


6. Which music genre are you most interested in?
Country


7. Who are your top 3 fave OPM acts?
Juan Dela Cruz Band, Rico J Puno, APO

8. Who are your top 3 fave foreign acts?
The Cure, The Smiths, The Beatles

9. Describe your analog set-up:
a. turntable brand Rega RP1
b. amp brand Yamaha
c. speakers brand Bose

10. What advice can you give those who are getting into this hobby?
Don't scrimp on the hardware

11. Do you think the vinyl resurgence around the globe is a fad? Or is this format here to stay? What are its implications to OPM and musicians?
I think people are starting to realize the value of music again. I hope OPM goes back to vinyl, too.

Not as extensive or as insightful but a good read nonetheless. Thanks for posting, sir.

dati pa yan sya sa vinyls..hindi say tumigil..I think we are all glad na he recovered from his sickness.. I thank him for the music..I'm not an eheads fanatic but I do listen to them..even my ringback tone is huwag mo ng itanong sa akin..but for me It's The Dawn..for the others..It's JDC..for the 80's born it's them.(di ko po nilalahat).the.Eheads..my 2 cents..

Get the Octaves cd..it's really good to those in the a little beatle rockabily with the garage rock fusion kind of music.. :rock:

Check out the post of Le-Van in the Eheads FB site. Pagpasok pa lang sa kanyang "Camp Big Falcon," LPs at turntable agad ang bumulaga kina Solein although wala pang Rega si Ely at the time.
