It goes without saying that vinyl is alive and well. But not even the most up-to-date Nielsen SoundScan can promise that your what you're spinning is any good.

Which is why record clubs exist, in part because paying to receive vinyl on a monthly basis is just an easier, streamlined shopping experience, and because a membership means have someone curate a selection for you.

Even better when that someone is Elton John. Or George Clinton, Talib Kweli or Sean Lennon.

Experience Vinyl is a brand new vinyl subscription service that offers handpicked records from big-name artists along with special commentary. As Billboard reports, the service is slated to launch in April with Elton John as the first featured artist.

It works like so: for less than $30 a month, members will receive a certain artist’s favorite album, along with why they chose it. In addition, curators provide their top ten album list. A portion of the profits go to a charity of the curator’s choice.

So you’ll grow your vinyl collection, get a side of music history and do a bit of good all at once. To sign up, head on over to Experience Vinyl.
