Best Buy May Start Selling Vinyl Records

Gizmodo – Best Buy May Start Selling Vinyl Records – Vinyl.

This is just plain fantastic news overall.  Gizmodo is reporting that Best Buy may start selling vinyl in their stores.

Now, this definitely is a double-edged sword.  On one hand, this means we’ll see a ton more reissues and a lot of new people getting into vinyl.  The downside is that it takes part of the joy away from crate digging.

The thing is, I think more so than anything else it’ll be a good thing.  There’s still gonna be a huge market out there for rare discs and good hip hop heads will always keep digging.  Just because you’ll see hundreds more copies of Boston and Michael Jackson out there, doesn’t take away from that legit first pressing of Curtis you found under a bin at a garage sale.

Instead, this makes it easier for a lot of kids to start getting into the genre.  Just like all music, you gotta start somewhere.  And I’d rather have a kid picking up a reissue of Kind of Blue then the latest Pussycat Dolls album.  Then again, we may start seeing all kinds of awful pop vinyl coming out.

Hey, at the very least, we may see some pretty creative mixes coming through.
