@Phaedrus- I'm also from that same age of vinyl, and most CD recordings drive me crazy. If you know how to take care of a vinyl record and you have decent playback equipment, the experience is better than listening to a CD. Try listening to a vinyl recording of a symphony orchestra and you'll see what I mean. Digital recordings have a lot less warmth, and some instruments sound like synthesizers instead of the real thing.
I try to explain to my younger co-workers that analog sound is the way to go. Digital sound only goes from one point on the scale to another. Analog sound is like a wave, flowing organically between the pitches. We didn't listen to guitarists like Eric Clapton just for their precision. We listened to them on analog recordings because of all the subtle bends in the notes.
