Vinyl enchantment​

The glorious sweetspot 1960s

As children of Synthetica, plastics have given those in the Western world a free and easy, prosperous lifestyle which previous generations could not have dreamed of. Out of the many sweet spots, once such gift has been the transformation of the music industry from vinyl, tape, cassettes through to the many plastics running through equipment in the digital age.



In the dark valleys  

A sanctuary of sounds  

Rotating, rotating, rotating  

Between grooves spiral, spiral, spiral  

Spiral to centre  

Lock, lead out, lock in, lead out  

When a man loves a woman  

Hello, I love you won't you tell me your name  

When a man loves a woman  

Can't buy me love, everybody tells me  

Stop in the name of love, before you break my heart  

Cos I can't help falling in  

Love me do you love me baby do you love me do  

Will you still love me tomorrow.  


To get by heart  

To go over in one’s mind  


Or silently
