A visit to a record store is a lot like going to an art gallery. Album art has a way of sparking new, exciting ideas. Records have a special way of connecting audio and visual elements in a way that CDs and MP3 formats rarely can. Plastic and paper, vinyl and visuals; records are the perfect package.

I’ve been going to Star Records ever since I was allowed to hang-out on my own growing up in Oshawa. The record store is the perfect place to get a dose of nostalgia, hear some great tunes and get a few laughs as you can see in the photo.
