CLEMMONS, N.C. — Whether it’s The Doors or The Drifters, Sinatra or the Sex Pistols, record collectors will be able to browse through hundreds of albums from a variety of genres Saturday at the Clemmons Record Show, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Village Inn Event Center, 6205 Ramada Drive, Clemmons. Admission is free. The show is moving from its old home at Marketplace Mall in Winston-Salem, said Richard Hill, the organizer.

Thirty-five vendors from across the Southeast are expected to set up more than 60 tables filled with albums, as well as CDs, comic books and posters. The big draw is the records. Vinyl has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity, with many young popular artists — such as The Black Keys and Lana Del Rey — choosing to release albums.

“I think with kids, they’ve inherited the record player and a few records from their parents,” Hill said. “I have a 20-year old grandson, and he just likes the sounds. It’s like collecting anything else. Once you buy one Led Zeppelin record, you really want them all.”
