Mom & Pop Record Shop


 I really love shopping for records. Especially old used ones, they have this authentic feel and sound that cannot be recreated through CD's or itunes downloads. Tonight I went to see one of my favorite musicians debut her second album. This musician goes by the name of Nicole Atkins. She has the sultry crooner voice that reminds you of Roy Orbison mixed with the Ronettes and Judy Garland all in one. She is amazing. I suggest you give her a listen. I have met her numerous times but for some reason I always get nervous and child like each new time. I had a great time digging for records and listening to her play, two great things in one great location. The location is Vintage Vinyl, they sell used cd's/records but also new music as well. If you are in the central New Jersey area, I suggest you check it out, I got three awesome records for 11 bucks! My choices were Heart, Pat Benetar and Paul Simon Live. I am very pleased.









Go check out Nicole's New album, you will not regret it, she truly is one of a kind. 
And also give some love to your mom and pop record shop- we should be keeping places like this in business, they have the good music that isn't auto tuned and stuffed with techno.

  10. Great photos! I love records! I want a record player so so bad. maybe someone will get me one for my birthday in JUNE! That would be awesome! Looked like you had a great time. I love going to hear live music. My husband plays bass and guitar for a band called Starrfadu. You should google them. They had a song on a Kleenex commercial for a while... the commercial with the blue couch. Yeah, I'm kinda proud of him if you can't tell. Great post!
