Vinyl, created by Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese, acclaimed author Rich Cohen and Emmy winner Terence Winter, explores the smoky, skeevy music business world of the 1970s, when punk, disco, and hip-hop set forth to irreversibly change the industry. With Vinyl: The Complete First Season out now on Blu-Ray and DVD, the creators and stars of the HBO show reveal how they captured the essence of the era in "Making Vinyl: Recreating the 70s."
