Vinyl Feature: Madonna - True Blue

True Blue was Madonna's third studio album and was released on June 30th 1986 by Sire Records. It reached a record breaking number one in 28 countries around the world and lingered for 34 weeks at the top of the European Top 100 Albums chart, the longest of any other album ever. It was the biggest selling album of the 1980s by a female artist and is still one of the best-selling albums of all time with more than 25 million copies sold.

All in all a great success!

Looking for an affordable Turntable? Try out one of these!

From The Vinyl Factory:


A few months ago we rounded up the 8 best turntables for home listening aimed at the committed audiophile, in which 6 of the 8 were priced liberally between £850 and £15,000. Fine to gawp at, and perhaps even aspire to, but with the selection generating a fair bit of debate on the site, we decided to follow it up with this; a list of the 8 best budget turntables that won’t chew up your records, all available for under £400.
