To Have & To Hold: A Film About Vinyl Records

Filmmaker Jony Lyle behind the intriguing Firecracker Records short about the process of screen-printing limited edition record pressings has a promising new feature-length "musicmentary" currently in production called To Have & To Hold: A Film About Vinyl Records.
Slated for release later this year, Lyle's 90-minute Goosepimple Productions project is meant to be a celebration of the whole vinyl subculture using archival footage, pressing plant clips and talking head style interviews with lifelong record lovers like Blue Note's Bruce Lundvall, Chuck D, DJ Bobbito Garcia, Christian Marclay, Danny Krivit, Amir "Questlove" Thompson of The Roots, and others. Hopefully some sharp programmer selecting films for a Toronto music or documentary festival will pick it up for a local screening. Here's a preview...
