It's Record Store Day UK – Our Vinyl Top 10

It’s the 10th ‘Record Store Day’ on Saturday 22nd April and we’ve been inspired to pull out our trusty albums and dig for new vinyl inspiration at our local record shop this weekend. There’s been a huge resurgence in the love for vinyl, that feeling of owning a tangible piece of art and getting that unique sound of the needle on the record that we remember so well. A new generation of music lovers is embracing the experience and there’s a burgeoning vinyl record sales chart with new and vintage artists, appearing on vinyl and inspiring young and old.

We’ve compiled some Top 10 vinyl ideas we think you’ll like, from some old classic selections from the team here at 3wisemonkeys, The Official Charts Company’s Top 10 vinyl albums of 2017 so far and the Record Store Day’s new vinyl releases list. If you don’t have a turntable yet, fear not we’ve got a few here from only £36.99 +P&P, that you can order for next day delivery and get into the vinyl party.
