What’s the best thing to do when you’re not digging for vinyl? Look at photos of musicians digging for vinyl. Voices of East Anglia featured a few great pictures of stars during the 1960s hanging out at record emporiums, and we wanted to add our own contribution to the collection. We found your favorite musicians in the wild, with wax. If you know of a great photo, link us up in the comments section.
