I’ve always been an old soul. I remember finding my dad’s old record collection in our basement when I was about 10 years old. Ever since then, collecting vinyl records has been one of my passions.

Yet, somewhere in the past few years, a shift back to vinyl has happened. There’s been a sudden mass interest in buying and collecting vinyl albums. Having a record collection is now the trendy and “in” thing.
