Revolver Records does a phenomenal job of keeping us connected. Not just with good music, not just with new albums, or with incredibly cool, undiscovered artists; they give us everything. Even vinyl. For those of us who prefer the old fashioned turntable, we can get both the new and the used, the vintage and the mod at the Roosevelt Row record room. Their list of top ten selling vinyls of the week gives just some indication of the diversity of their clientèle. While The Flaming Lips top out the list, Abner Jay, who died in '93, still makes the cut, as do bands from Japan and France. And who said Phoenix is a cultural desert?
