Collecting Vinyl Records: Back to The Future for Cool Cats

Vinyl Records Are Coming Back

From out of the blue I received an email from a journalist asking about the renewed interest in "vinyl".  The baby boomer that I am....I wondered to myself  "why on earth is vinyl of interest again?". Vinyl, vinyl, vinyl......I thought about the subject for a few seconds and realized, the gal who wrote to me is probably talking about RECORDS....vinyl records, not plastic textiles.

And yes, there is a spike in interest in not only collecting vinyl records but also in recording and listening to music on vinyl. Vinyl records are having a comeback for several reasons: the quality of recordings, the design of record covers and the love of nostalgia.

P.S. I actually saved many of my album covers and threw out the records......dumb dumb dumb.
