Vinyl revitalization on NBC News

Vinyl is back in a big way. Here is more proof, not that any of us vinyl-o-philes need any more proof. This is from NBC news.

Opening Day. Hang the bunting!

A great opening day at Rediscover Records. Thanks to all the well-wishers, visitors, browsers, as well as, buyers. Thanks for making opening day a great day at Rediscover Records. Keep coming back for an always changing selection of vinyl, brand spankin' new as well as that great well worn looking vinyl.

Some of the selections we listened to today was Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Jackson Browne, Santana, Detroit Cobras, and a little Emerson Lake and Palmer.

Keep 'em spinnin at Rediscover Records!

Welcome to Rediscover Records

You may have just googled, oogled, choogled your way to this blog or website looking for a record store or, perhaps, namely, Rediscover Records. Rediscover Records is a brand new used record store in wonderful downtown Elgin, Illinois.

What is Rediscover Records? It's where an old school, or new school, vinyl lover can go and browse through bins of glorious vinyl in search of great records. It's a store within a store! Rediscover Records (a web site is pending if you've already done that search and destroy) is located in the "2 Doors Down" Antique Shop in Elgin, Illinois at 207 E. Chicago Street. So the space itself may not be immense but we hope the shopping experience will be immense as well as epic. There is a great book store, Elgin Books, Elgin Public House, Elgin Antiques and Uniques, Ravenheart Coffee and the Domani Cafe is nearby. There are plenty of other shops within walking distance and a FREE Parking Garage directly across from Rediscover Records.

The method to our madness will be to carry the best of new vinyl, either hot new 2010 releases or even those great vinyl reissues they are, well, reissuing. We've also done all the grunt work of searching garage sales, estate sales, (those pesky) flea markets, and even a few flea circus's for the best in collectible and not so collectible vinyl. So if you have never left the world of vinyl, you are just getting into vinyl, or you are just coming back to vinyl after that infildelity with CD's and downloads, we welcome you and we welcome you back.

Visit us again soon at this blog as well as our pending website that will have a calvacade of information or perhaps a web sales presence online.

The time is now to Rediscover Records.

We'll end with this quote from The White Stripes, Jack White

“I think it’s high time the mentors, big brothers, big sisters, parents, Guardians, and neighborhood ne’er do wells, start taking younger people That look up to them To a real record store and show them what an important part of life music really is. I trust no one who hasn’t time for music. What a shame to Leave a child, or worse, a generation orphaned from one of life’s great beauties. And to the record stores, artists, labels, dj’s, and journalists; we’re all in this together. Show respect for the tangible music that you’ve dedicated your careers and lives to, and help It from becoming nothing more than disposable digital data.”
