Choosing a personal, meaningful gift for the holidays is never easy. Homemade gifts are time consuming, clothes won’t fit, and electronics are pricey. For a gorgeous gift your family member or friend will adore, give the gift of vinyl. Academy Records, a New York City music landmark since 1977, has a vast array of affordable second-hand and new records across the genres.
These days, sharing a song via Spotify, iTunes, or YouTube is easy. Most people don’t use their CD players (if they even have them), so gifting a new album on compact disc usually means the tracks will be uploaded and the disc filed away forever. When you give someone a vinyl, you’re giving more than music. Unlike CDs, records have beautiful album art, sentimental weight, and collector’s value. Even if the recipient doesn’t have a record player, there’s something special about owning an album on vinyl from their favorite artist.
You might have trouble finding out what your friends and family need most, but most people know the favorite band or artist of their loved ones. Not only is the record a classic collector’s item, a vinyl from Academy Records carries the tradition of a New York City landmark. It is easy to find your friend’s favorite album from the selection of rare records. Browse the vast array of classical, rock, jazz, avant-garde, and pop records to find their favorite. If you don’t find the record you need, Academy Records also has movies and other collector’s items.
Visit Academy Records online store or stop by their East Village location to find legendary holiday gifts with true value. Your friends and family will thank you for giving them the gift of music they can hold in their hands.
