For example
Santana [lotus]
the original issue [triple] with booklets, and large illustrations. 12 by 12                        or

?would you prefer the hissless digital issue. small replica. neat!
or despite clumsy needle and bulk of product etc, would you go retro vinyl for pleasure.
                                                         or
have both, play the cd whilst gazing/handling the PVC

? what other artist releases are as stark as this suggestion

may you ponder with Ying Yang

I prefer LPs, 
I used to live down the street from one of the world's best DJ shops in San Francisco, so getting new vinyl was easy.

I also like LP. The album put on the market again recently seems to reproduce the form of LP faithfully. It is similar also in the market in Japan.

The Lotus album of Santana was recorded in Japan and put on the market. The album art extends like the poster. It is seen one good art. Of course, it is adopted with CD.

By the way, the person who took charge of Agharta of the Lotus album and Miles Davis and the album art of Pangaea is the same.

I was a late-comer to the Cd (93 or somthing) , but once I did.... Was sooo taken with the user-friendliness compared to the vinyl, that I almost immediately decided that vinyls were a turned page in my life... Which was a little quick a decision back then, but I still buy the odd used-vinyl nowadays
 
 
I'm an audiophile (staying reasonable of course), but for me whether playing an album via Cd or vinyl doesn't make much different.... yes the comfort of the CD ... yes the warmth of the vinyl.... Yes you have to store away the vinyl... Yes the Cd is still a good sound and it doesn't affect the enjoyment of the music...
 
 
If I like the album sleeve artwork, I can make the effort of getting the mini-Lp cd...
