Vinyl Record News & Music Notes

splitting up some posts, it's the new way of doing things.....:O (

fantatsic write up the the chichago tribune about the joys of vinyl and our 'special record store day'

Celebrating vinyl for Record Store Day

We explore how vinyl has once again taken a front seat in stores and in music fans' hearts. Plus, our picks for vinyl releases to look out for.

By Josh Noel, Tribune Newspapers

When visiting my neighborhood record store in recent years, I've breezed past the front of the shop — and most of the compact disc-browsing shoppers — to get where I wanted to be: the rows of vinyl in the back.

 Whether it was the warm perfection of freshly pressed 180-gram vinyl or the charming imperfection of a 30-year-old record that passed through countless hands, vinyl has been my reason for visiting record stores for close to a decade. Since the dawn of the MP3, if I want digital music, I download it. CDs need not apply.

Top 5 eBay Vinyl Record Sales - Week Ending 04/01/2012

Top 5 eBay Vinyl Record Sales - Week Ending 04/01/2012

And I talked about a trend last week. For the second week in a row a Butcher cover makes the list. I debated whether this counted. It's the sleeve only, but it does have the Perry Cox authentication. The last mono 1st state that sold with a Perry Cox authentication was in 2009 and did have the record. It sold for $7k. My favorite 45 of all, Mixed Feelings "Sha La La", showed up this week, selling for almost $2k less than its usual price. However, I'll talk about a possible reason for this on the show.

1. LP - The Beatles "Yesterday and Today" LP Butcher First State Mono Perry Cox COA (cover only) - $5,000.00

2. 45 - Mixed Feelings "Sha La La" / "Love Will Find A Way" United - $3,105.00

3. LP - Leaf Hound "Growers Of Mushrooms" Decca UK - $3,420.00

4. LP - Ben "self titled" Vertigo UK - $2,338.09

5. LP - JR Montrose ". . . In Action" Studio 4 - $2,215.00

Vinyl Record Talk is Live on Radio Dentata on Tuesdays at 9pm ET / 6pm PT at
