Vinyl Documentary: To Have & To Hold

To Have & To Hold - Taster Tape from Jony Lyle on Vimeo.

To Have & To Hold is a new documentary from Jony Lyle that celebrates and explores the phenomenon of collecting Vinyl. The documetary includes interviews with well known collectors like Bobbito Garcia, ?uestlove, Chuck D, Andre Torres (From Wax Poetics), Amir (of Kon & Amir) and Bruce Ludvall, the owner of Bluenote. Based on the trailer the film seems to be heavily focused on collectors in or around New York.

You can learn more about the film at the official Facebook page. Also there’s an interview with the director over at Mat Dolphin’s blog.

I’d love to hear from other record collectors out there. What are some of your favorite pieces of vinyl in your collection?

Customer Support

It's always great to hear back from our customers and supporters. Especially since we personally package all orders in-house before going to the store. We got a message today from a happy customer with a link to his personal blog, I figured we should share. Serves as a nice testimonial to our company and the work we've been putting our hearts into!
