Digitizing vinyl

Finally -at home with a sick child- I find the time to digitize some old records, turning vinyl into bits. A few months ago I bought a Stanton USB turntable for the job, but hadn’t used the cable, until now… WOW! so happy here!

So, here’s Headstart to Happiness by The Style Council, from the album Introducing The Style Council (1983) including the priceless crackling dust…

The Style Council

Their first album – Introducing The Style Council (1983) Recorded at La Studio Grande Armée, Paris, France

On Youtube {naturally} it has an amazingly blurred colorful videoclip, in which they demonstrate their out-of-the-box stylishness in an upside down interior, together with some lovely ladies; a French looking horn section and the wonderful Dee C. Lee, who were not onboard yet when the album was recorded.

Couldn’t help drawing a color scheme from the clip!

    Hi Wilma, as somebody who has synesthesia, Grapheme Synesthesia for me, I totally enjoy your color chart about the video clip. Great, thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you Cecilia, for your comment and introducing a rather interesting condition to me. Something to maybe write a post about! {From Wikipedia: Grapheme → color synesthesia is a form of synesthesia in which an individual’s perception of numbers and letters is associated with the experience of colors.}
