Definitely Vinyl/LP music records. I feel they are really underrated, and people into music, prefer MP3's or CD's. There are other people into Vinyl, but it doesn't seem to be that many.
I live in the LA area, and I go to Amoeba Records (which is a really good record store in Los Angeles.) sometimes. I haven't gone recently, because they renovated into a new building just around the corner, and I believe that new building is now open, but I still haven't gone, but I'm sure I'll visit again soon.
I found so many good finds on Vinyl. I just add to my collection, which is adding up and pretty expansive as it is. Especially 70s, 80s and 90s music. I also got some Vinyl of current and new releases as well.
They sort their Vinyl into genres. So Rock, Metal, Jazz, Blues, County, Adult Contemporary, Dance, Disco, Electro, Pop, World, Latin, European, Import, and my personal favorite, which is R&B/Hip Hop/Rap/Soul/Funk.
I remember I got a Vinyl copy of one of Jim Nabors (the guy who played Gomer Pyle. I had no idea he did music) albums. I also got a KD Lang Vinyl record, and some Earth Wind and Fire records. Yes.
So Vinyl records, is kinda my obscure hobby that I like I suppose. Yeah.
Thank you for sharing. Is there some band in particular you like and is kinda unknown or underappreciated?
