The (Vintage) Records You Need to be Spinning

What is it about classic vinyl that makes us feel so connected to the music?From the moment the needle drops, the first notes crackling through the speaker, we’re hooked, spinning our favorite records over and over again, wearing down the ridges, falling deeper in love with the songs that always seem to get us right in the heart. Whether you collect, amassing vinyl after vinyl, or simply own a few old favorites, there’s something that sets records apart from tapes and CDs, something that has withstood the test of time. You remember your first record, cherish it. Mine was ABBA Gold, bought at a flea market in the 7th grade. It sits sandwiched between copies of Neil Young’s After the Gold Rush and Ramones Ramones, each one representing a different period of my life, and each one loved just as much as the last.

With the launch of our Vintage Loves: Tunes & Treasures collection, our vintage buyer, Ali, has curated a selection of records, posters, and accessories that will speak to the collector within. Check out what Ali has to say about this exclusive collection below, and be sure to click through to browse the entire selection:

i just got my record player last year for christmas, and am planning on asking for some records for xmas…
bob dylan on vinyl might be my favorite, but i just love listening to records in general and how it forces you to listen to the whole album.

My favorites are anything 80’s FLEETWOOD MAC or Stevie Nicks solos are a definite. And the other day I found my GREESE soundtrack which was took me back in time. There is nothing that compares to that time out with a good vinyl.

I am absolutely in love with the collection you put together. My record player is probably my most beloved thing. It’s just so much better to listen to music on vinyl, especially classic rock, it feels way more real. My favorite records I own at the moment are The Doors’ debut album and Led Zeppelin IV. Essential to any collection I think! :D x

Sorry ladies, but support your local record store instead. I love fp, but when it comes to records I trust my friends at my local shop. They always have bomb recommendations, and you’re supporting locally owned businesses, not a giant corporation.

This is so fun! I have a record player, but I don’t have many records! This would be perfect!

Most of mine belonged to my grandparents, but I was lucky that they had as deep of a love for Fleetwood Mac as me and inherited all of records. Such a joy picking up vinyls.
