I dont understand this. There are more people in the worlld today than ever....yet music sales in general, are a FRACTION of what they were 20-40 yrs ago.
I have to say tho....im thrilled about vinyl sales going up. I HOPE that will drive the price down, as some vinyl are a pure rip off. To put this into context, I bought Dry The Rivers debut album. The CD was going for £7 and the vinyl was £28....but luckily i picked it up for half price eventually.
I think vinyl buyers are being held to ransom....as they know we desire to own the physical item, whereas those who go for CD or digital versions can easily settle for a pirated download, costing NOTHING! So i think they are cashing in on vinyl buyers
