Nothing moves us quite like music. If you are anything like me, music is one of the most powerful memory triggers. While certain tunes take me back to college or high school, other songs take me back to a specific place and time. To this day if I hear “Every Morning” by Sugar Ray I have a vivid memory of driving through the hills of west Seattle with my girlfriend Rachel, singing at the top of our lungs.
Our relationship to music is often deeply personal, emotional and truly powerful. I cry anytime I hear “In the Arms of an Angel,” by Sarah McLaughlin because it was sung at my uncle’s funeral.
With this intense relationship i mind, it’s not surprising that people are crazy about collecting music. And records are gaining popularity again. Some claim it’s the baby boomers who long for the nostalgic items of their youth. Perhaps it’s the hipsters and their fanaticism about everything retro, but whatever the reason there is a renewed interest.
That’s why this year’s 20th Annual Denver Record Collectors Expo should rockin’. This is the Rocky Mountain region’s premiere music collector’s show because more than 40 dealers from around the country attend the one day event.
This expo will have everything from records to 45s and even CDs, and every style of music is represented. Whether you are a hardcore collector, often called audiophiles, or just a fan of music in general, there will be something for you at this event. In addition to music there will be posters and memorabilia for purchase.
So without further ado, here’s the nitty gritty:
