The majority of music produced during the 20th century was on vinyl albums. These albums had distinct pops and crackles that sounded as they played someone’s favourite bands or artist. Listening to Janis Joplin sing “Take Another Piece of My Heart” or Jimmy Hendrix working his magic on the guitar can only be appropriately experienced on a vinyl record. Buying used vinyl records has become more popular in the last decade.
Collectors always have enjoyed searching thrift shops and garage sells in the pursuit of a rare used vinyl record to add to their collections. Many just like being able to play the music they love with all the sounds of the original recording. Record enthusiasts will tell people that CD’s and digitally remastered tracks lose the real quality of the songs or the artists singing them. Particular groups of people will buy old records to resell them on auction websites to make money.
