NO longer on the outer, vinyl will continue its comeback with the greatest hits at Bathurst Showground.
The annual Record, CD and Vintage Fair is on this Sunday with all music lovers invited along for the party.
Fair co-ordinator Jon Ordon said the event will feature tens of thousands of music items.
“It provides top quality records and CDs for the Central West that people wouldn’t have access to,” he said.
“There will be cool collectibles and dealers offloading records as well.”

Mr Ordon said many music lovers prefer to listen to vinyl because of the different sound it produces.
“You actually get a much better sound, especially for analogue music,” he said.
“It’s a beautiful sound, digital tampers with that analogue sound.”
Mr Ordon said many current artists also include short runs of vinyl alongside their digital releases.
“A lot of them release vinyl, but just small runs of 300 or 500 [records],” he said.
“The records come out and they’ll be a collectors item.
“It’s really interesting all the different releases that are coming out.”
