of course music with a fast beats
Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's compilation album 'pressure cooker' from '85. A bunch of recordings from the '70s I believe. Quite a few things are in play here, just as Mr Brown wanted it, hell I even think he would somehow accept some people streaming his music. Anyway a marvelous musician and a multi instrumentalist with some strong opinions. A rough vinyl version here, but the stream is in good quality.

Lovely to have another reggae fan on CN :D
Well... Me...! :)

I personally don't buy the "vinyl sounds better" line many people spout. I've A/B'd vinyl with FLAC files and can't hear a difference on some pretty expensive gear, my Dad is an audiophile, my gear is low end in comparison. If you want to improve the sound of your music a decent amp, good speakers and a good external DAC system are all you really need. Or decent headphones.

I like vinyl because of the product, gate-fold albums with artwork that you actually want to sit and look at, and because they force you to listen to the album the way the artist intended, with tracks in the order intended. I like having music on my phone, it's great, but I like to be able to sit back and properly listen to music. Vinyl is more of an event :)

You can get a decent turntable pretty cheap these days, Pro-Ject and Rega are worth a look. Remember you'll probably need a phono-stage.
