It all starts out with a peek through the doorway.
And the next thing you know, the great people at Legend Records on Wellington are finding one incredible vinyl gem after another for you.
The debut album from the Knack ( I promise you there is so much great stuff beyond My Sharona on that first release)
John Mayall and the Blues Breakers Live Jazz Blues Fusion
The Cars debut from 1978
Miles Davis Sketches of Spain
Anyone that collects or has an interest in vinyl probably knows how good / dangerous it can be going into these shops. Because it never EVER stops at buying just one record.
There is a smell of the past to vinyl stores, they are usually badly lit with neon overheads, full of clutter and at times difficult to find what you are looking for. But it is for all those SAME reasons why they are so great to visit. A music shopping experience that won’t ever be able to be recreated on iTunes. And I love that.
