Gift Guide for Music Lovers

We’re just 10 days away from Christmas and if you’re still shopping, here are a few ideas for the music lovers on your list.

Record Player – Know someone that doesn’t have a record player but wants to start listening to vinyl?  A portable record player makes a great first turntable.  With built in speakers, 3 speeds and RCA output, you can just plug it in and play.

New Stones Album – Have a Rolling Stones fan on your list?  The Stones’ new album, Blue and Lonesome, is their first studio album in over 10 years and the band’s first album of all covers.  Loaded with old blues songs, this is the type of blue Christmas you want to have!

Art by a Local Artist – Buying for someone who has everything?  A piece of art always makes a great gift!  Vinyl Revival has a nice selection of artwork made locally including pottery by Bob Deane, drawings by Drew Arata, and creepy doll art by Kimmymetal’s Creepy Creations and Art.

Album Cover Art Handbag – Made by hand, an album cover handbag is rock wear for the fashionista on your list.handbags

Books by Local Authors – Vinyl Revival has several books by local authors including autographed copies of Rock & Roll’s Hidden Giant:  The Story of Rock Pioneer Charlie Gracie, Pop’s Cookie Duster  by Don Doyle, Lee Doyle, and Annette Debevec, Another Day on Planet Earth by Frank Rosci, and Love You Live, Rolling Stones Fanzine from the Common Fan by Marilou Regan.

Rock and Roll Home Decor – Rock & roll home accessories like clocks, bowls, coasters, and magnets made from recycled records add rocker chic to any room.

Countdown to Record Store Day 2016

Woo hoo!  We are just one month away from Record Store Day.  We are super excited about it and hope you are too!

Last week, the folks at Record Store Day announced “the list” of titles that will be available on April 16th.  You can take a look at the entire list here.  There are about 350 titles.  We want to please as many customers as possible, so, as Dawes would say, we ordered “a little bit of everything.” Many releases are limited editions and there are a lot of record stores participating in this special day so we may not get everything we ordered.

We hope that you’ll stop in our store on April 16th beginning at 10 a.m. to helps us celebrate independent record stores.  We are planning a few events including a Vinyl and CD signing with Brazilian jazz group, Minas, a book signing with rock and roll pioneer Charlie Gracie, with more events to be announced.  We’ll have complimentary light refreshments and beer and wine all day.  Check our Facebook page for event details as we’ll be adding more to it as we confirm things.  #RSD16
