Vinyl Records Are Making a Comeback – The New York Times. Pictured above, Adafruit debut album on pink vinyl, FREQUENCY. YAY TOM WHITE!
Today is Vinyl Record Day, observing the day in 1877 when Thomas Edison invented the phonograph. And, yes, vinyl is still alive.
Vinyl Record Day is the First Nonprofit organization dedicated to:
The Preservation of the Cultural Influence, the Recordings and the Cover Art of the Vinyl Record
Celebrating our Fondest Music with Friends and Family
Promoting the Future of Vinyl
Nationally Establish August 12th, the date Edison invented the phonograph in 1877, as Vinyl Record Day
Frequency by Bartlebeats is the soundtrack to your soldering. It’s the first vinyl record from Adafruit that collects the music that drives our YouTube channel like a V8 engine on a Mustang. All of it’s collected into one unique, limited edition, old school package. The record itself is a lovely pink and has a case with cover art designed by artist Bruce Yan. It’s a perfect way to rep your DIY pride and Adafruit spirit.
But that’s really just a bonus to the music you’re getting. We’re providing a free digital download through the Bartlebeats bandcamp page.
It’s all music you’ve heard just by watching our videos but you’ve never been able to own it until now.
