The vinyl record renaissance over the past decade has brought new fans to a classic format and transformed our idea of a record collector: younger, both male and female, multicultural. This same revival has made buying music more expensive, benefited established bands over independent artists and muddled the question of whether vinyl actually sounds better than other formats.
Vinyl Nation digs into the crates of the record resurgence in search of truths set in deep wax: Has the return of vinyl made music fandom more inclusive or divided? What does vinyl say about our past here in the present? How has the second life of vinyl changed how we hear music and how we listen to each other?
We are lucky. Right here in Lincoln City we have our very own vinyl record store!
Relive the excitement of getting an anticipated release; taking off the cellophane, smelling the newness, looking at the artwork, maybe lyrics, remember side one and side two?!! Sometimes the inner sleeve had photos, lyrics or fanclub info!
You can relive this at Output and so much more. They sell turntables, new and used records, books, t-shirts, home decor and gifts. They also buy used records and can special order records.
