Our Daily Vinyl #5: Culture Club

It is a sad but true fact of life that I once derisively mocked anyone who opined how amazing vinyl was and how music just sounded better when played on a turntable. Now, in a somewhat ironic twist of fate, I’ve come to realize, well, it’s true.

Oftentimes you can hear the inspiration of a band in their musical output. I'm not sure I really hear this next band in the mountain of gorgeousness that is the music of The Diamond Center, but perhaps the spirit of Boy George is there in small doses. Here's another peek into the record collection of The Diamond Center's Brandi Price and Kyle Harris. And now, Kyle explains Culture Club:

"Culture Club - Karma Chameleon 45rpm. This was one of the first singles I remember asking for. It was in 1983, I think. I would've been about 6. I still have this, my copy of Thriller (of course), Bonnie Tyler -Total Eclipse of the Heart, and Sesame Street Fever."
