I’m in my early thirties so I remember the joy of records. One of my favorite records was Queen’s ‘News of The World.’ I also remember listening to my father’s motown and Stax collection as well as my grandmother’s country collection that had more twang than I could stand back then but, seem to like more now. Records were so interesting to listen to and many people have started to rediscover the beauty in the records. If you don’t like records, you still got to love the record store.
Now days many people sit at home downloading music but, it doesn’t have the same feel as walking into a place like Great Escape Records and Comics and hearing music with others. Seeing the cover art and getting the full range of the musical experience. Rock and Roll is more than sound, it’s experience. This year a special day makes it even bigger with Record Store day on April 16th!
