yes. I use irecordmusic too. (same idea but you can record streaming live).
I agree with Paul and Shanksalot. It's the music that counts. I love vinyl - but for shit like Northern I'm happy to have the tunes.... esp for mixes and stuff....

Completely agree with you mate - my personal philosophy is, if it's a choice between having a tune in my hands or not then there's really no choice. Having just started collecting Northern Soul was gobsmacked too at the prices - however the attitude among the seasoned veterans on the forums was stick to cd - they reckoned most of the reissues were legally and quality wise very shady and you're more likely to get the original recording on cd(with some of that money going to the artists)...This attitude was refreshing coming from a reggae background where as a podcaster everything has to be vinyl (even though you have people like Jah Tubby's using laptops and Shaka using cd's).

With regard to mp3's have started to employ the method you mention (I use irecord music) - but it has to sound pretty good to put on a tape and I'd never play it out (just a personal choice).

Another option is to approach the collectors direct and offer them some cash for cd's of their vinyl - you'd be suprised by how many are up for this. 50% of those tunes on that mix were direct from a guy who runs a Northern Soul site (http://northernsoulmusic.co.uk/p1.html) with thousands of tunes you can listen to online and then order on cd (30 tunes for 6 quid). As mentionned all the Northern Soul guys I've spoken to (from promoters, clubbers and dj's) care about one thing - their scene surviving and the music being played - which is probably why it's never gone away and is thriving today.

Finally - I'm always wary of any podcaster who wears the 'I only play vinyl' badge of honour, in most cases they think that's enough and their mixes are usually lazy and/or they'll frequently play both sides of a not very good record just because they payed a shit load of money for it. For me the best mixes are the ones with some thought gone into them, containing some fresh tunes and with a bit of mixing ability on display - I'm not scruntinizing every track for snap,crackle and pop.

Each to his own.
