Vinyl Is Back! Out Sells CD’s!

So back in the day vinyl albums were the staple. They were what we used to play music on the radio as well as just enjoying music in general. Of course technology took over and since those good ole days we’ve been given 8 tracks, cassettes, CD’s, thumb drives, downloads, computer generated or at least stored and who knows what else! Album sales fell off tremendously, but in recent years vinyl has started to make a comeback and now all of a sudden vinyl is out selling CD’s. The days of vinyl records being a nostalgic relic of the past are long gone. This year, vinyl sales have outpaced CD sales in the United States for the first time since the 1980s. Vinyl records accounted for $232.1 million of music sales in the first half of the year, compared to CDs, which brought in only $129.9 million, according to a report from the Recording Industry Association of America. This is great news so be sure to make a stop at your local record store!
