High End 2016 TABlog
As always, the gigantic main floor at the High End show featured countless stalls of record sellers offering new and vintage vinyl for sale.
Quite a few stalls also had CDs for sale.
What seemed to be on the upswing this year was the number of sellers specializing in new reel-to-reel tapes.
Several of the tape sellers featured listening stations for sampling their wares. Some of these provided an opportunity to hear some exceptionally well-recorded versions of classic titles, although too many titles were obscure music that might never be spooled up again.
LP reissue labels were represented by a team from Mobile Fidelity and Abey Fonn of Impex Records (left, with Josefina Lichtenegger of EAT), who roamed the halls making sure exhibitors had LPs to spin in their rooms.
