Just like rock and roll, vinyl records are still popular. Music lovers appreciate the authentic sound of vinyl and believe listening to music on vinyl creates an atmosphere where the listener can engage with the music. Vinyl records experienced resurgence in popularity beginning in 2008, with the introduction of digitally remastered presses of albums like “Abbey Road,” “Thriller” and Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.” In 2013, Daft Punk, Vampire Weekend and Queens of the Stone Age are among the top selling vinyl albums. Here are some of the best vinyl shop in the ‘Lou.
