Leorena Cupcake, Chicago budtender, writing for Vinyl Me Please:

"Anyone who works in a record store eventually runs into patrons who insist that music began and ended with the Beatles. “There’s some overlap with audiophiles, the guys who spend forever on online forums arguing over copper speaker wire and SACDs, but not a ton,” the former Reckless employee explained.

“These guys are always incredibly mad you don’t want to pay a billion dollars for their Beatles records. Only a few are really collectible; remember, they were the most popular rock band in the world for some time? There were gazillions pressed?”

She nailed it. What surprised me initially when I got the audiophile bug was how small and limited in scope some audiophile’s record (LP) collections were. Tens of thousands of dollars in equipment, and maybe 100-150 LPs. In the day limited to Super Tramp, Pink Floyd, and Casino Royale, or more recently Diana Krall, Holly Cole, and Beck.

Streaming has more or less changed the record collecting end of the hobby. Access to some more obscure and great sounding music has been made avaialbe to the average consumer and audiophile alike.

Thanks for sharing. I do miss my regular visits to Reckless Records, Jazz Record Mart, Laurie’s, Dusty Grooves, etc.
