Thanks again for the support you have given with The Commodore Story over the last 2 years.

It's now time for us launch a new and exiting documentary we have been planing for the last year.

The Vinyl Story - Keeping in the groove - http://kck.st/2Ry952Z

The Vinyl Story is a cram packed 2 hour documentary film that takes you on a nostalgic journey from the origins of Vinyl up to near extinction with the slowdown of sales and releases and then on to the Vinyl Revival we see today.

Although this documentary is not about computers it certainly is part of our past and present with more and more of us recapturing the magic of Vinyl together with young people embracing the old school technology.

In recent years it has also been exiting to see SID and Amiga Chiptune music being released on Vinyl. Sid Waves was a great example and is indeed in my collection.

The Vinyl Story documentary will include interviews with Recording Artists, Cover Artwork Design Artists, Record Companies, Vinyl Pressing Plants, Record Shops and Collectors. We will also be looking at Turntables, Amps and Cartridges discovering new innovations that are happening around Vinyl.

STRETCH GOAL - We are planning to do a stretch goal to include an extra Documentary (The Mixtape Story) Blu-ray disc to make this a DOUBLE Blu-ray release.
