Hey fellow vinyl lovers,

 

I thought I would just add a few tips for people wanting to get back

into vinyl or new fans wanting a starting point.

If you are ready to start collecting vinyl, you will need to buy a record player, but where to begin?

There are seemingly endless options!

Jack White releases his eagerly anticipated new album, BOARDING HOUSE REACH on Friday, March 23. This is the 12-time GRAMMY Award-winner's third solo LP and his first all-new album in nearly four years.

Written and conceived while holed up in a spartan apartment with no outside distractions, Jack replicated the identical enviro...
