Record Collecting Still Thriving in the Twenty-first CenturyWritten by Charles Essmeier
Continued from page 1
The greatest interest in record collecting is in artists of 1960’s and 1970’s, but newer bands, such as Nirvana, draw a lot of attention from younger collectors. Nivrana’s first single, Love Buzz issued in 1988, sells for up to $2000 and there are several other bands, such as Misfits, that have released numerous records that sell for more than $1000. What do collectors do with these records? Some play them, some frame them, some simply put them on shelf. There are collectors who only buy records that they intend to play and others that simply want anything that was ever commercially released by artist that interests them. There is no pigeonholing a collector; they come in all shapes and sizes. For them, finding a long-unavailable single that has eluded them for years is like winning lottery.
For those who are interested, there are literally thousands of Websites devoted to artists, records, and record collecting. There are well-known magazines, like Goldmine , Discoveries, and in UK, Record Collector. Anyone who thinks they might be interested in collecting records has more resources available to them than ever before. Twenty years ago, people thought that records would be long forgotten by now. They couldn’t have been more wrong.

Great musical theater songs Baroness has chosen for this charity theatrical event are dramatically intense, touching, witty, ironic, and just plain charming. Baroness Elisa, who has performed on world stages throughout Europe and Australia, noted, “It is an honor and privilege to perform for this noble and important cause”. The intimate three hundred seat Crest Theatre in Delray Beach provides a perfect theater venue where Baroness Elisa’s charisma and audience connection can thrive. The Crest Theatre is located at historic Old School Square, 51 North Swinton Ave., in downtown Delray Beach. Theater reviewers raved about Baroness’ show: “The slender red-headed ingénue melts hearts of audiences. She is in every sense of word a beautiful woman, earthy, gentle, and comfortable with herself, and in touch with her audience. The Baroness is joined her talented musical director, husband, and Baron, Peter Gerolymatos on piano.” Ticket prices are affordably priced at $50 and may be purchased on internet through Ticketweb at www.ticketweb.com or by calling 866-468-7630.
