Music is a necessity of life, to put on headphones and get lost in a world of melody is what helps us go on. Music and songs have taken turns in many ways, from Elvis Presley, Beatles, John Denver, have reached the world of Drake, Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, Coldplay. As the music changed, so did the way we listen to it. As much as it is easy and fun to listen to a song on phone which is either downloaded from the internet or enlisted in an app, Vinyl will always be something dear to many. Having a Vinyl collection is way better than having a playlist for each day. The records owned are important as they are hand selected and then bought, instead of listening about it and downloading it for later use. Each record not only plays good music but has values and importance.
There is a 7 decade old shop right here in Kolkata for those of us who are a bit old fashion. Vibrations(the shop) is situated at Mirza Ghalib Street, New Market Area.
