Starting a Blues Vinyl Collection

Vinyl record sales are on an increase; it's retro appeal among hipsters, vintage enthusiasts, audiophiles, collectors, and an older generation reminded of it's simpler past are among the reasons for this. Audiophiles swear by the sound of vinyl as being 'pure' sounding compared to digital and CD formats; teens wanna look cool with records... it's the hip thing these days.

Well I got a few blues records for my birthday in September, but I had no record player. Until yesterday that is!

Say hello to my little friend.

Thanks to my friend Amin (a talented musician in his own right), I purchased his Numark portable record player... this little-player-that-could is a great starting point for a new collector; I've only got a few records now... but thanks to eBay and me being a compulsive collector... I expect my record collection to grow significantly in a short period of time.
