Vinyl Renaissance

With digital downloads and iTunes taking up space on everyone's hard drive, you may wonder why anyone would go to a record store anymore. Music has become more portable, but we've grown horribly accustomed to lousy sound quality. If you doubt this, get to Vinyl Renaissance and marvel at the tonal richness and vibrant warmth of a vinyl LP. This Shawnee shop has a colossal selection, from classic-rock albums to obscure soundtracks to collector-baiting jazz. But you aren't stuck in the past here; you can also find pressings of the latest indie albums next to those Beatles LPs and old quad masters. Want a Capi­tol Sinatra record on heavy vinyl, in mono? This is the place. Heard about limited-edition singles for Record Store Day? They're here. And for those who still want something to rip to a computer and slap onto an iPod, don't worry — plenty of CDs live here, too.
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Oct. 7. Continues through Oct. 7, 2010
