It is wonderful to see vinyl albums enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Just by researching the internet and walking the streets, you will discover record albums in areas that might surprise you. You will even find new artists releasing music albums and jumping in on this new wave. We can only hope that younger generations will get to have the experience we did by listening to vinyl albums.
There was an era when life seemed much simpler. One great thing was going into a record shop and sorting through the bins of vinyl. Purchasing your first album was a big deal, and probably a memory that many of us still carry. You could purchase a 45 single of your favorite song, or an entire album simply based on the cover art alone. Nothing was better than getting an album and getting extras inside like photographs and liner notes. These are the tangible things and memories we miss today by downloading all of our records off the internet.
Digital downloading makes finding and listening to music fast and convenient. It is definitely an extra plus, but you miss out on so much more. You completely miss out on making memories by sharing and listening to music with the people you love. In one house alone, you could have parents listening to Beatles vinyl in one room, and your brother enjoying new release vinyl records in another. You could spend full days listening to records with your friends and family.
Today, finding out background about anybody is very easy. All you have to do is put someone’s name into the internet, and you can get every single thing about them. There was a day when your favorite bands were mysterious to you. Besides looks and voices, you didn’t really learn much else about them. You don’t get that wonderful, mysterious feeling because of today’s technology. Vinyl covers were the only thing you had to build your own story about bands.

A music album lets you feel like you get to own a piece of your favorite album or band. Vinyl make us take off our headphones and become a part of creating something very special.
