As a lifelong music geek who spent thousands of hours both working at (link fixed), selling to and scouring Chicago-area record stores, I look forward to checking out this documentary:

"Re-Vinylized" trailer from John Boston on Vimeo.

And even though I've been turntable and vinyl-free for ten years, I still have a soft spot in my heart for the 12" slabs and the iconic stores where they're sold. It's a shame that so many have closed over the years as consumers chose to buy (or is more-often the case, steal) their music in a digital form. I guess I'm one of the few remaining music fans who believes in both supporting the artists and stores, along with wanting to have the music in a physical form in order to read the lyrics and liner notes and enjoy the art.
