Amazing Vinyl Finds + Recording Shopping in Chicago

Recording Shopping in Chicago
I just love record shopping in Chicago. Vinyl hunting, as I like to call it, has become one of my favorite hobbies. I love the element of surprise attached with it. You truly never now what you’re going to find. Usually they have the lesser known albums of classic/ popular artist or they have a lot of unknown artists. I’ve been on the hunt for some Aerosmith and Rolling Stone vinyls and I was pleasely surprised by what I found. They had almost every Aerosmith album and they were all under $9 (what a steal!) I really wanted The Rolling Stones Let It Bleed album but of course they didn’t have it. They did have Aftermath for only $6 though.

After scanning the ‘clearance’ aisle for 20 minutes I finally hit the jackpot: The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour. This album is tied with Coldplay’s X&Y as my favorite album of all time! Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, Hello GoodBye, All You Need is Love and I Am The Walrus are some of my favorite Beatles songs. I’ve seen this album at other records stores for $25 and up but I found it for only 8 DOLLARS! Talk about an amazing vinyl hunt!
