Founder of the ambient dance band The Orb, Alex Paterson, is releasing his latest album on Monday, and it is also being released on vinyl.

Paterson is still celebrating the use of the vinyl format.

His own record collection is 30,000 strong and he says collecting them - from the rare, the sublime, to the bizarre - has been his life's work,.

Today reporter Tom Bateman visited Paterson's house to listen to a small selection of his collection and to find out what happened to the record collection in the age of digital.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 3 June 2013.
