In an interview with College Radio News Network, Megadeth’s leader Dave Mustaine was asked to reveal his top 3 vinyl albums.
“If I was forced to pick my top three vinyl albums, I would probably pick some old classics, because of the tonality of the instruments back then and a lot of the analog amplifiers, as well as the analog consoles and analog recording devices. Same thing with the analog microphones.
“So, probably [1968’s] ‘The White Album’ from The Beatles.
“Probably [1975’s] ‘Wish You Were Here’ from Pink Floyd, or [1973’s] ‘The Dark Side of the Moon,’ which is another great album for sounds like that.
“And most definitely, because it’s very personal to me, AC/DC’s [1977 album] ‘Let There Be Rock.’
“And, like I said, to me, all of the analog equipment and the chain, the series of all of the parts, as much analog as possible, to me, had a really warm sound.
“And, of course, you needed to have a great stereo and playback system to make it all come together. But if you were that critical about all those parts in the series, then you already had a great-sounding stereo.”
A phonograph record (also known as a gramophone record, especially in British English, or record) is an analog sound storage medium in the form of a flat disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc. At first, the discs were commonly made from shellac; starting in the 1950s polyvinyl chloride became common. In recent decades, records have sometimes been called vinyl records, or simply vinyl.
