The CD-vinyl hybrid - for the technology-loving old-things fetishist

Ah, the 80s! The CD came along, and we all enjoyed ultra-crisp sound and not having to turn over an album halfway through.

Ah, the 90s! Suddenly 'real music fans' all started going on about how really it was all about Vinyl, for its warm sound, fun giant sleeves, and general air of muso authenticness.

A boring argument has raged at parties ever since. Until now! American techno musician Jeff Mills has stepped bravely between the warring sides wielding an ingenious peace offering: the hybrid CD-vinyl disc.

His new album, The Occurence, looks like a normal CD at first. But turn it over and - lo! - it has a fully-functional vinyl underside! Genius.
