In the 1960s and 1970s, it was common for teens—and adults, too—to make their way to their favorite record stores once a week to pick up the latest 45 they’d heard on the radio during the past week. Those vinyl discs never really went out of style. They were tested for a time with the appearances of cassette tapes and CDs, but true vinyl lovers simply wouldn’t let them go. These days records are back to stay. And they’re for sale in stores that carry new releases and vintage favorites. For a little bit of nostalgia, check out the 10 best record stores in New Hampshire.
