I love the bit at the end of the Wikipedia article on Elcaset where it says:

The Elcaset system was abandoned in 1980, when all the remaining systems were sold off in Finland.

So up yours from Sony, Finland!

When I get a day or so free, I intend to sneak into a couple of trendy cafes in Shoreditch and have 'conversations' on my phone about how everyone is a fool for buying into the vinyl vibe when only old shellac records give the real sound that people should be listening to. Throw in a couple of early rock n roll examples, maybe a rare/obscure blues or jazz recording and then sit back and wait to see how long it takes before it hits the Guardian ......

:D

Many years ago I read a suggestion that you should listen to music on the medium it was originally mastered for; e.g. 1960s rock on vinyl, Ambrose on 78 etc. - makes a lot of sense to me.

Anything that winds up the skinny jean wearing, mullet cropped, too-cool-for-school Shoreditch poseurs would be supported by me.

Good plan, but I hear the really trendy types have already moved on from Shoreditch as it's become too gentrified...

Careful now, I think that's a step too far. :D

I just might be able to fit a trio in my car, if the drum kit is small . . . .

Bring back Elcaset say I! Analogue, shiny machines with proper meters, clunky switches and large pots .... what more could you want for superb audio?

(The search-term 'Elcaset' will now rocket-up the Google popular searches chart! ) :lol:

Elcasets are very good quality if used properly though!

Many years ago. Now its a strange combination of tech bros, city boys and unimaginative tourists. The junkies and scam artists are still here, however.

I love that "The Grammy-winner is determined to leave no music format behind. Late Night Feelings will also be released on vinyl, cassette and MiniDisc" so digital and compressed MiniDisc's are good but CD isn't :clap: :clap: :clap:

I trust it will also be available as badly transcribed sheet music for pub piano and a guitar accompaniment featuring chords that all require at least 5 fingers and a 4 bar stretch to play.
