    Ah… The eternal question. OK. Not eternal. But something that some people get very passionate about.   Let’s start with a little history from my perspective. I grew up with vinyl.

OK. This is my little studio, such as it is, where most of my little solo album thingy is being recorded. But, I just realized, all studio’s are named! The Beatles had Abbey Road….
