This roundtable discussion hits on vinyl trends, keeping up with new music and counteracting record-store stereotypes.
Harvest’s eclectic record label has partnered with Asheville-based avant-rock duo for “Heads Full of Poison.” You can pre-order now the double LP on vinyl.
Music lovers began waiting outside Harvest Records at 3 a.m. By the time the doors opened seven hours later, anxious customers wound around the building, forming a line that spanned nearly two blocks. Inside, fans scrambled to the special release tables where a plethora of limited edition vinyl waited.
Traffic was steady throughout the day at the fifth-annual record sale, with most of the serious buyers pursuing a niche interest. One woman was looking for 12” disco singles. Another man was only looking for jazz from the ‘50s. Neal Richardson, who lives in downtown Asheville, sported a beanie propeller cap with the slogan “I don’t wanna grow up.”
For some, going back to the time when records were the way music was delivered, it is an apt slogan.
