The Vinyl Record Finder was founded in 1990. We have been in the record buying and collecting business for over 20 years. Located in Memphis, TN, we are one of the largest online record stores located in the Mid-South. Currently, we do not have a physical location, but we plan to open a store in the very near future. We have been successful for so long because we are fair, very accommodating and we offer the highest level of customer service. Our business was founded on these principles and we still believe in them today!

More and more it is becoming increasingly hard to find radio stations that play jazz music. Here in Memphis, jazz clubs are few and far between and they are disappearing from cities around the globe. Jazz is often referred to as a dying art form. This does NOT have to be the case!
The status quo in the jazz community can basically be summed up in one word: SCARCE! Again the opportunity to see jazz musicians in concert is almost non-existent, with very little coverage on the radio or television. Jazz record sales have had a little boost, but these are still barely worth talking about. It is imperative that we as jazz lovers circulate the music.
"A Great Day in Harlem" or "Harlem 1958" is a black and
white group portrait of 57 jazz musicians photographed
on a street in Harlem, New York City.
Art Kane, a freelance photographer working for Esquire
magazine, took the picture around 10 a.m. in the
summer of 1958. The musicians had gathered on 126th
Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues in Harlem.

Why I Collect Vinyl! Vinyl records have a special allure. Yes, the hiss, snap and crackle of a record is soothing music lovers around the world. There is a warmth and an ambience that vinyl brings to the music. In case you didn't know, the human ear hears in analog (NOT DIGITAL) making vinyl records naturally sound better. Once left for dead with the advent of the ‘digital age’ vinyl is selling again. This is not a fad or cycle; music lovers young and old are being drawn to this historic audio format. Vinyl is cool again. Listeners young and old that at one time laughed at their parents’ record collections are now waiting in line to get the latest releases. Even mainstream recording artists are now releasing new material on the vinyl record.
