The Art of Collecting Vinyl Records

By Seth Frank Subscribe to RSS | March 1st 2012 | Views:

Collecting LP records and turntables has become increasingly more popular in the last few years. Buying and selling vinyl music is being done by more and more people every day. It’s easier than ever to get vinyl albums on sites like Ebay, at record stores and thrift stores, and at record conventions and estate sales. Hundreds of web pages sell vinyl albums exclusively. With today’s digital equipment, music has become streamlined, and easier than ever to seek and obtain, but it is nowhere near the same as the nostalgic days of vinyl. Music aficionados everywhere are collecting LP records now for a long list of personal reasons.

People hold on to vinyl music for their own list of reasons. For exceptional sound quality, music aficionados and professional music employees turn to vinyl records. Compressed digital songs have a binary sound that is of lower quality than album music. A tangible format is another reason listeners love albums. This gives music aficionados a physical thing from their past that they can hold on to. A huge factor aside from the nostalgic aspect is being able to share the music. Playing an old Elvis Presley Vinyl with your friends and family can be an exciting and entertaining way to spend hours together. Making memories is done by sharing music, which is more difficult when it comes to a digital format.

People collect vinyl because it is a big business, aside from sound quality and history. Every year Ebay sells up to 3 million vinyl records on their website alone. On average, users buy and sell six vinyl albums every minute. The vinyl record trade has clearly not gone away. It is highly possible that on any day a Beatles album or Beatles vinyl records can sell for thousands of dollars. Highly collectible records by various bands can sell for a lot of money. If you get an album by Led Zeppelin or the Rolling Stones at your local thrift store or estate sale, you are very lucky. The record cover art alone can be worth cash and is often highly coveted. Artwork from album covers can be used by collectors to hang in their houses or offices.

If you are a genuine lover of music, collecting vinyl LP’s may just be the hobby for you. You will even begin to notice that new musical artists today are releasing albums on all types of styles including vinyl. This gives you the choice to listen to new music on records now. Listening to songs with your friends and family is a great way to share your collection and hold on to the past. As more and more people are beginning to see the value of buying and selling vinyl records, you might make a business out of your hobby.
