About us

About us

Being a lifelong collector of albums and compact discs since the purchase of my first album at the age of 5 (KISS Destroyer), Hollow Bone Records is the realization of a past regret.

I started my career in sales and spent over fifteen years living in the Chicago area, one of my go-to spots in the late 90’s and early 2000’s was a little shop called The Sound Booth.

Why Buy Vinyl?

You might be asking yourself, what’s the point in buying vinyl? The truth is, there are so many benefits to listening to music on a record player.

  • The Incomparable Sound: Vinyl records give you analog sound rather than digital. The music is within the grooves on the record, which you can physically see. When the needle touches those grooves and creates the music, it gives you a more accurate, authentic sound – much superior to listening from a streaming service!
  • To Get On Board with Physical Media: Physical media is becoming increasingly popular. While music streaming services are becoming more expensive (and constantly changing what they can offer), physical media stays the same. By owning records of your favorite artists, you own that music physically, which is a feeling you cannot beat.
  • To Be Part of a Rich Culture: The community in the world of vinyl is a very welcoming one that’s full to the brim with culture. With such a rich history, vinyl collection commonly becomes a real passion.
  • It’s an Experience: The experience of opening a vinyl record and placing it into a turntable is a unique experience. It almost becomes a ritual you’ll associate with your favorite music.
  • You Can Collect it: Vinyl is meant to be collected. Once you buy one, you’ll want to expand your collection to create the perfect set of all your favorite albums and artists. It’s something you’ll want to show off to everyone who visits you!
  • To Avoid the Screens: Most people have to access a screen to play music. That’s not the case when you have vinyl records and a turntable. By investing in vinyl, you can avoid using screens when you simply want to listen to your favorite records.

Tips for Storing and Using Your Vinyl Records

Whether you have one vinyl record or over a thousand, learning how to store and use your records is essential. Vinyl records are meant to last a lifetime (and then some), and with little effort, they will.

  • Buy from the Best: Always avoid bootlegger vinyl records stores! If vinyl looks too thin or the price tag is a little too enticing, don’t fall for it. You want to purchase real, high-quality records, as they’re the ones that last forever and produce that beloved vinyl sound.
  • Come Up with an Organization System: Do you have a large vinyl collection, or do you plan on building one over time? Don’t make the rookie mistake of storing them in any old order. If you do, the next time you want to listen to The Rolling Stones or Beyonce on your turntable, you won’t be able to find the right record! So, develop an organizational system that makes finding your records easy. Some popular systems include organizing them by record label, genre, and alphabetically. It’s up to you.
  • Store Correctly for Longevity: Vinyl records are supposed to last long – that’s part of their appeal. However, there needs to be some effort on your part for this to happen, so store all your records correctly for increased longevity. That means keeping them in a temperature-controlled environment in plastic sleeves and on a sturdy surface.
  • Clean Vinyl Regularly: Did you know you’re supposed to clean your vinyl regularly? It’s true! The best way to ensure your records stay in tip-top shape is to clean them before every use. A quick brush before listening is enough to help your vinyl stay in good condition.
  • Invest in a Good Turntable (and other equipment): Finally, invest in a good record player to experience vinyl to the max. A good set of speakers and amplifiers can elevate that experience even further, so consider that. Generally, it’s best to go with a well-known brand with great reviews from fellow music lovers.
