Vinyl for Beginners: Must Have Albums

Starting a record collection can be quite the undertaking. There are so many albums out there, where do you even start!? Well, we have the vinyl for beginners guide for you to reference. These are our must-have vintage records you’ll need to start your collection off strong:

Rumours by Fleetwood Mac
This is THE must-have album in our opinion; there’s just no other way to put it. Every record collector has this in their library and for good reason. The behind the scenes drama of the band is melted into these songs and the vocal harmonies are some of the best ever recorded.

The Stranger by Billy Joel
This is an album that’s designed to be listened to all the way through. It’s filled with hit after hit and gives you that perfect opportunity to dance along to the songs in your kitchen. Everyone loves Billy Joel, so start with this album first!

Unplugged in New York by Nirvana
You could choose any of Nirvana’s albums, but Unplugged in New York is a true gem. Live albums usually don’t translate on vinyl, but this one is the exception. Stripped down Kurt Cobain and Nirvana’s emotional lyrics make this a shining achievement that every vinyl lover owns.

Abbey Road by the Beatles
You know we couldn’t do a music list without the Beatles being on it. Abbey Road is a common favorite and it withstands the test of time. It’s considered one of the best albums ever, so everyone should have this one ready to play!

Purple Rain by Prince
Purple Rain is just Prince being Prince. It screams the 1980s and we love it! It’s a fun and vibrant album that proves Prince is one of the best musicians and guitarists of all time. This album is a reminder of his genius and one of a kind persona.

Back to Black by Amy Winehouse
If you’re looking for the perfect rainy day record to spin, this is it. Amy’s smokey voice is meant to be played on vinyl and Back to Black is her at her peak. Honor her legacy by having this classic in your collection.
