Vinyl records have had a loving resurgence in recent years. It seems like almost every recording artist is hip to this new craze be wither releasing older recordings on vinyl for the first time and/or making sure all of their new releases are on this once almost forgotten format.
For some it’s a better-quality recording or something new to collect from their favorite artist, for others it is a way to slow life down and just immerse yourself in the music. Some just enjoy it simple for the retro fun. No matter your reason for collecting records, it is a fun and exciting hobby that only adds and extra level of enjoyment to your love of music.
