L.A. Record Store Culture: Collecting That Comes Full Circle

Inspired by Darren Crandell, vinyl collector and founder of Vinylog (custom-built record bin/storage units), we sought out L.A. record stores that highlight the timeless culture. “For me, it's about the experience” says collector Tony Ervolino, who we met along the way. “In music, there are two people, those who are always looking for the next best song and those who are looking for the next best album. I'm an album guy, and that's why vinyl is important.” Join us as we dig through L.A.'s top record store vinyl bins! All photos by Kelsee Becker.
