For Rajat Kakar, managing director, Sony DADC India, the vinyl experience is intrinsically linked with the romance of un-sleeving the record, the original inlay and the artwork. He believes that vinyl is largely the preserve of collectors and connoisseurs with a passion for high- fidelity sound which gets lost in compressed digital formats.
Though vinyl gradually faded from the mainstream when the audio cassette was introduced in the US inthere was another group of people, apart from audiophiles and vinyl collectors, who kept the second-hand LP market alive—the DJs. Crate-digging in far corners of the world for specific tracks, underground sounds and lesser-known artists, DJs shared a close relationship with the LP, swearing by its superior sound.

The Pearl Jam sound fused classic rock, funk-inspired and reverb-fuelled riffs and sweeping choruses that Vedder could accompany with memorable lyrics. There was also the darker, more brooding side of Pearl Jam — such as Jeremy, a song written about a high-school student who shot himself in front of his class.
