Record Player Pros
The #1 Site for Everything Audio

Top Record Players
I loved my store, but unfortunately, I had to close it a few years back. There simply wasn’t enough demand in my area for record players. Especially not vintage and antique units, which is what I mostly sold. Once the internet took off, anyone who wanted a record player simply went online to get it. It was easier and the prices were better. There was no way I could match Amazon.

So I closed up shop, but I always wanted to get back into it somehow. Teaching music to kids is great, but I also wanted to do something that focused on vinyl. That’s why I started this site.

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.


What else is there to say? Here is the story behind every song written by The Beatles. Click here or on the image.


The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").

David Dodd's exhaustive study tells the story, song by song. Click here or on the image.
