Yes, of course there is a difference between Vinyl and Digital recordings. Analog includes the entire sound wave while digital just samples the middle, cutting off the peaks and troughs.
If you spent your life with headphones on, especially loud, you have damaged your ears and eventually your ability to hear all the frequencies and sounds becomes more limited.
Further, with music being a background, people don’t pay attention to it as deeply. As evidenced by people rarely knowing the correct words. or what they even mean in the song, which, singers really have to in order to get it across.
If you are unconvinced by the technologies involved and how they work, then it can be discerned by how people who do know, talk about their experiences of it.
When I first began reading Elvis Presley books, they ranged from tabloid rehashes, to pristine press releases, to insider expose, to technical career statistics about recording sessions, release numbers, the variations between takes of each song to the mono to stereo and quadrophonic recordings, lists and lists of releases, official, bootlegs, professional recordings and fan recordings, the SuperFans who became his semi-official photographers and concert filmers, sometimes their photos being those Jumpsuit Covers,.
Which might seem to blur and blend now, but at the time, all the science fiction tv show – Space 1990, Buck Rodgers and to some degree Battlestar Galactica were all jump suits and the jeans that the teenagers were wearing were bellbottoms.
it was the 1980s, when the Levis with pre-faded and acid wash and stone wash and pre-torn, the grunge used third and fourth hand look came in.
the actual Levi coveralls and jeans worn by miners and hard resource extractions famously didn’t do those thing and it took decades of wear to get that look through wearing them.
It boggles my mind that people are paying hundreds of dollars for the thin layer of denim, almost at the cut it apart for other clothes and rags, passing for jeans now.
Levis and Elvis… Lives Lived, eh? Music like sports, it is all about the statistics. You can’t know it’s fun or better unless it’s quantified in some way, eh?
