Every Record Tells A Story
Every Record Tells A Story is the name of an eclectic music blog covering a variety of music including rock, indie, blues, metal and vintage R&B with particular interest in used vinyl and live performances.
The writer, Steve, has written for Classic Rock Magazine, Team Rock online and Record Collector Magazine. Steve has also appeared on the Radio 4 programme The World Tonight and on TV with BBC4’s Pop Charts Britannia: 60 Years of the Pop Charts, which looked at the history of popular music.
Since 2012 Every Record Tells A Story has looked back at rock and pop’s quirkier stories, myths and legends, re-telling them in a humorous and fun way.
A unique feature of the blog is Steve’s forays into the world of record collecting, some of which have involved a wager. For example, could you build a collection of original Beatles vinyl for less than the price of the reissues? How much would a complete set of David Bowie’s classic albums cost? Could you make and sell on eBay a deluxe box set of Neil Young albums using the original albums? And if, instead of buying a box set by Oasis, you spent the same money on buying second-hand albums, what records could you end up with?
ERTAS also features live reviews, photography, the occasional interview and general music-related nonsense.
