    Detroit has produced some of music's most highly regarded and historically important figures. Home to the Queen of Soul, Motown, the birth of techno, numerous top 40 hits and one-hit wonders, Detroit's musical influence can be heard around the world in every genre of music. Detroit artists and musicians have won countless awards, topped the Billboard charts, sold millions of records, and many have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Legendary and iconic artists Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Eminem, Kid Rock, Iggy and the Stooges, MC5, Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, The White Stripes, Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Parliament featuring George Clinton, and The Romantics all emerged from the area. Rock on, Detroit!

      Well, thanks for sharing it, it's really stunning. The I love the tone of B&W that you choose, and I love the glint of light! Record players are just so beautiful. Even though I am fully in the digital age there is just something about a record...
