Dyno Records in Newburyport celebrates 40th anniversary: Dyno Records, which sells records (both new and vintage vinyl albums and singles), CDs, musical accessories, turntables and other musical items, saw a bump in business with the comeback of vinyl. Osborne has a theory about the new popularity of albums. “The sound is richer and fuller. There’s beautiful artwork and you can read the liner notes without putting on reading glasses,” he said.

Getting Down to Business with Heads Up Music: Mark Brumbelow and Stephanie Lynn opened the doors of Heads Up Music in March. They don’t just have the hardware — stuff like turntables, vinyl, CDs, cassette tapes, DVDs, guitar strings and drumsticks — they’ve also got the ethos of a classic record shop, one that seeks to serve as the community’s hub for all things music.The co-owners sat down with The Taos News to talk about the economics of Taos’ music scene and getting young people hooked on analog sounds.

Rear View Mirror: The World’s Rarest Vinyl: The rumour goes that in 1966, the Darrell Banks song in question was licensed to London Records. Eager to start selling the popular soul song, the label sent it off to be pressed at their vinyl plant. However, that night there was a disagreement between the artist and the label, and now they had major problem on their hands… they’d already pressed thousands of copies of the song. Not wanting a lawsuit, they stopped the presses, pulled all the copies of the song from the factory floor and melted them down, every record destroyed by fire… except one. One copy escaped.

Old Street Records launches with pizza, cocktails and vinyl on the menu: Old Street Records, which officially opens on June 30, is collaborating with two record labels, Fiction Records and Caroline International, to sell their releases. This will mean vinyls (“Vinyls” in not a word. —Ed.) from artists including Iggy Pop, Tame Impala, Nick Mulvey, The Maccabees, Ian Brown, Mystery Jets and Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes will be able to be bought from the bar. The Shoreditch site will also serve pizzas along with cocktails and craft beers, and it’s not all about vinyl — the bar will also have live music six nights a week, with an eclectic programme of soul, funk, jazz, rock and pop.
