Nate Niceswanger, 35, is the owner of ZZZ Records, which has been at its new location, 2200 Ingersoll Ave., for about a year.
First album: "The first one I bought myself was The Thompson Twins, 'Into the Gap.' The first one I got as a present was 'Sports' by Huey Lewis. I'm a child of the '80s."
An album everyone should have on vinyl: "Abbey Road" by The Beatles. "In our store, it's a fairly consistent seller. From people in their 50s and 60s to 15-year-olds buying it for the first time."
Adapting to the new location: "It's much smaller, but that's forced me to focus a little more. We're much more selective with what we take in. There's free parking closer to the store and it's on a much busier road, so we have more visibility than we did before."
Vinyl in a digital world: "There's a lot of reasons people get physical albums rather than MP3s, especially vinyl. There's the 12-by-12 artwork you can't get if you download. Some people like the cool factor of having a party and bringing out the new Portishead for their turntable."
Record of the year: "Right now my No. 1 is the new Phoenix." ("Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix")
Best concert experience: "The Unlimited Sunshine Tour with De La Soul, Cake and Modest Mouse, who had third billing, in 2002. The cool thing is there was Latin, bluegrass, rock, rap all in one show. Everyone ate it up."
