Music collector finds touching letter inside used record

Man Finds Heartfelt Note Inside Used Record: 'Play It Loud for Mark'

After purchasing a rare vinyl online, Reddit user Muctur quickly realized the record came with an additional bonus that, in his words, "hit him right in the feels."

Upon opening his used copy of Soundgarden's 'Superunknown', he found an accompanying letter, written by the mother of the record's previous owner, explaining why she was making the sale.

She goes on to explain that her son, Mark, passed away unexpectedly in 2002 from a heart attack. One of his biggest passions in life was his music collection, which she says he began assembling in the 80s while in college.

Bought a used LP. I found this inside. Right in the feels.

"I would ask him on occasion when he slepped (sic) all this music home (2000 cd + over 600 vinyl LP's)! 'What do you want me to do with all this music' if something should happen to you," the letter stated.

"'Listen to it, Mom' he would say."

While she did listen to some of the records, she says it's now time to share the music with other people by "doing research, listening, shipping" the albums to fans all over the world.

The proceeds from the therapeutic online store also goes to her grandson and Mark's son's college fund.

You can see more albums from his collection here, so you too can "play it loud" for Mark.
