    Clad in band T-shirts from Metallica, Queen and Prince, music enthusiasts and collectors sifted through crates of records and listened to live music at the Vinyl Revival Tour record show this month in hopes of finding their perfect record.
    Vinyl, long-playing records known as LPs, was introduced as a music listening medium in the late 1940s. This once-dated form has undergone a resurgence because of events like the recent gathering at the Social Grill in Irmo.
