Digital wolves in warm, fuzzy sheep’s clothing

45cases2

I know a lot of the Darkjive faithful are also among the analog faithful (some, if only in spirit).  The clicks and pops old records afford make our hearts skip a beat (even recreated on digitized copies).  Well, get ready for a digital wolf in warm, somewhat fuzzy sheep’s clothing: 45iPodcases.com.  Their tagline even heralds “Digital meets analog” (very, very literally).

Very clever, I say.  Using old vinyl, labels and all (and old cassette tapes for iPod nanos) their collision of chips and skips is definitely a statement maker.  As a 45 collector, I hope they use records that are unplayable (no reason for the babies to suffer). 

And speaking of a new birth of wax, both iTunes and Amazon are  selling digital 45s!

Apple’s iTunes Music Store is taking digital music back into the groove, offering two-song packages known as “Digital 45s“: which feature an A-side and a B-side. For $1.50-$2.00, you can purchase a single along with a lesser-known track you might not already have (that can be difficult to find elsewhere on iTunes).  Great ideas never really die.  They just get remixed.

Jive on…
