THE JOYS OF VINTAGE VINYL
In the digital age of iPods, CDs and MP3 players,
there's a media from yesteryear that's brings back
the sounds and memories from earlier decades . . .
but you'll need a record player!
In most cities, there's a resurgence of vintage vinyl stores
(like St. Louis' own Vintage Vinyl shop)
where collectors can sell, trade and buy
record albums from the past 60 years.
Some are very collectible and rare (expensive),
but most are very affordable and less expensive than CDs.
The quality and condition are surprisingly high.
The biggest advantage of record albums (LPs)
is the artwork, photography and information
included on the front and backs of the cover.
Vintage vinyl is seriously worth a "second listen."
(Vintage music stores are also a great source
of local concert and band information, too.)
