Meet the Vinyl Community with Clark Stooksbury

|

The man holds up a 78 rpm record bearing the blue-and-white logo of Chess Records, an iconic label for any fan of the blues. He places it on a vintage Califone turntable, and we hear Howlin' Wolf's "Rockin' Daddy" in all its tactile glory. The song plays for three minutes and six seconds. And then the brief video ends. Clark Stooksbury introduces us to the weird, wonderful world where people watch each other play old records on YouTube.
