Back when life was pre-covid I used to browse charity shops and thrift stores for 1980s vinyl records.
When I was growing up in the 80s I never actually owned a Duran Duran record, and only came to appreciate them later on.
Here’s Duran Duran’s live album Arena from 1984.
Seven and the Ragged Tiger was their third album, following Duran Duran and Rio.
Duran Duran is my favourite, but I’d love to get hold of a vintage vinyl copy of Rio, too.
There’s just something magical about vinyl, isn’t there? The ability to hold the record in your hands and appreciating the artwork on the sleeves, having to physically turn the record over to play the other side. I mean streaming is great, but holding the music in your hands is totally different.
