Vinyl Mania 2 event celebrates popularity of vinyl records: “You think it’s all audiophile nerds, people in their 40s or 50s lining up to drop north of $30 for a “new” vinyl copy of an album they already own in multiple formats, or rock geeks unable to come to terms with the whole “digital streaming is both the present and the future” edict. But you’re wrong.

Dynomite Records – the second-hand vinyl music store in Kambah: “The resurgence of vinyl as a preferred listening format has been well documented in recent years and the three independent record stores scattered across Canberra, along with JB Hi-Fi in the city, have embraced this trend with record racks now a familiar sight alongside the usual CDs and DVDs.”

Musicians, others start local record label: “A partnership of Sioux Falls music artists and entrepreneurs wants to help bring back vinyl records in a big way. Different Folk Records LLC started recently to help musicians turn their work into an album.”

Tower Records on Sunset Blvd to be Restored for One Night Only: “The Tower Records building on Sunset Boulevard was once a major WeHo landmark. It was saved from the threat of demolition last year, and will now return to its full former glory for just one night, thanks to a new documentary about the brand. Colin Hanks’ All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records is a new documentary exploring the history and legacy of Tower Records, which began in California in 1960 and expanded nationwide, with international franchises, before going bankrupt in 2006.”

Is vinyl worth it? “Vinyl album sales have been on the rise for a few years now. Is it just a fad or a real trend? What does it say about what true audiophiles want in sound quality?”

Vinyl treasures await: “Vinyl lovers will find heaven on earth at Nelson’s annual record fair. Organised by avid vinyl collector Grant Smithies, the fair will be held on October 31 from 2PM at the Free House’s yurt. As there are no more record shops left in Nelson, Smithies feels the Record Fair might fills the void a little.”
