JAMEY JOHNSON is one of those guys who just reeks old school.  It's no accident.  Not only does he love classic country... but he prefers to listen to it in its original form.  He says, quote, "My favorite way to listen to music is on vinyl LPs.

"The jacket of 'The Guitar Song' album tells the story of how a vinyl record is made, in pictures.  You see the pellets that they turn into liquid form.  You see the liquid vinyl that then goes over and gets stamped on the machine press.

"Even the CD version of the album tells the vinyl story."
