Record Album For Sale
In recent years, digital music has all but supplanted the once-dominant analog formats of the past. No longer can a music fan find even a single record album for sale at most music outlets, as it has no longer proven profitable for most music sellers to devote the necessary space to a form that is not only older, but larger. Indeed, in an age when even CDs may be supplanted by MP3s and other computer media without physical form, the notion of seeking a record album for sale can seem almost quaint.While it is no longer customary for new artists to release a record album for sale at all, there is a growing secondary market for real vinyl records of the past. Online resellers specializing in record albums have tapped into active communities of record collectors and other audiophiles, ensuring that finding a record album for sale will remain a possibility for years to come. Ironically, it is the rise of the Internet and digital technology that has turned out to be the saving grace of this analog format.Record Albums and WarmthWhy go with vinyl instead of the newer technologies? While no serious audiophile would ever dispute that CDs have greater frequency response and precision than analog formats, a number of fans still maintain that vinyl holds something far less easy to quantify: warmth. While studio tricks can approximate this warmth, the uniquely imprecise sound of a needle passing over and through grooves cut into vinyl creates sonic richness and variation that no amount of CD pits and valleys can match.Finally, the larger size of record albums provides one of its greatest attributes: the capacity for artists to accompany the music with substantial works of cover art. After all, CD covers provide only 14 percent of the surface area provided by record albums of the past. If you are in the market for vintage records or rare current releases by bands with a nostalgic bent, you will find a welcoming community of vinyl aficionados with which to do business.
