What if there was a local restaurant where you could get scrumptious food and support a wonderful cause.

Music recording has come a long way over the years. Digital technology has allowed record producers to create a smooth, clean sound that sounds almost perfect. But sometimes that level of perfection can leave a song feeling a little soulless. Thus the vinyl renaissance that has sprung up in recent years. With vinyl records, you can hear the depth of sound created by the instruments themselves, not just what makes it through digital compression. It’s as if you are in the studio with the musicians. Finding the right record store is like finding the perfect record; you just keep digging until you find what you are looking for! OC is home to some amazing record shops to build the perfect collection.
