Music store lovers pay homage to local record stores

It's a day for record store staff, customers, and musicians to get together and celebrate the culture of the independent record store. Park Ave CDs, located at 2916 Corrine Dr. near downtown Orlando, sells everything a music-lover could possibly want: vinyl records, CDs, cassettes, posters, books, and trinkets of all kinds. Last year, sales of vinyl LPs accounted for $395 million, up 10% over 2016, Recording Industry Association of America says. Be sure to get down to your local independent record store early as they'll only have a limited supply of each design!

In the past five years, vinyl has made its way back to popularity, and with its newfound attention, vinyl has become mainstream again, with even big box stores like Best Buy selling records.

Record Store Day will be celebrated across Ireland on April 21.

Folk Arts Rare Records will be introducing customers to Jupiter Records & Tapes, the Folk Arts sister store set to open in City Heights in four to six weeks. "Everyone always has fond memories of their local record stores", she said.

DiFabio said the continued interest in the format is because of the socially inviting aspect of it, where a group of people can sit down and listen to an entire record and enjoy it.

Saturday is International Record Store Day and Barrie will join the festivities that reach every continent, except Antarctica. The limited edition items are often colored vinyl, are numbered, and have special packaging. A Let's Dance 12-inch single has the full 7:34-minute demo version of the song, mixed by Nile Rodgers, and a live version from The Serious Moonlight Tour concert film. The Grand Rapids location offered free crack fries with any purchase if someone had a same-day receipt from a record store. Also available: the soundtrack to the 1991 film Rush, available for the first time on vinyl.
