1 Year Today - We celebrate Asa, our undisputed Prince of Rock


It's our customers that make our job enjoyable and some customers are extra special.  One of those is Asa. 

1 year ago today Asa came in to Vinyl Revolution to buy his first vinyl record, Iron Maiden's Powerslave. That Sunday a tradition was born.   Every week since then Asa, usually accompanied by Dad Mark, has come in to add a new rock album to his collection.  Asa and Mark are the first smiling faces we see each Sunday morning!

During the time that the shop stuggled due to scaffolding Asa bought 2 records a week instead of one.  He also chose Vinyl Revolution to upgrade his first record player to a fabulous new Pro-Ject system.  Asa is the type of customer that every small independent shop needs and we are very lucky to have him!

Here's Asa this morning with Simon, Dad Mark and his Top 5.

To celebrate today's landmark Asa came in with his Top 5 favourite records from a collection which now totals over 70.  He chose:

  • Iron Maiden's Powerslave (his first ever record)
  • Metallica - Ride The Lightning
  • Queen - II
  • Pink Floyd - Animals
  • King Crimson - In The Court Of King Crimson

Today's new purchase was Deep Purple's Machine Head on purple vinyl!

Thank you Asa,  you are a superstar, and we are proud to see you wear your new Vinyl Revolution t-shirt.  Roll on Year 2!
