Old is new again?

By Brian . Created on Sep 16, 2020
I heard an interesting news bit on the radio today that sales of vinyl music albums had topped CD's in sales for the first time since the mid 1980's. While I knew these had made a comeback I had no idea they'd become that popular again. All that said, do you buy music on vinyl, or still have them from yesteryear?

I used to have hundreds of vinyl L.P.'s ,but in the past 6 years , I've sold between 2/3 & 3/4 of them on Amazon to help pay my medical bills. I've since switched to CD's . great sound quality & easier to manage.

Vinyl records are such a great throwback to when music was simple and enjoyable

Yeah history repeats itself. Think we still,have Grandma R's old Lawrence Welk records plus some my wife's Monkees and Beatles's albums!

Those original Beatle's albums may be worth a bit depending on the shape they are in, perhaps the Monkees as well. Agreed that like a record, things rotate back sooner or later.

I think by 'retro' he meant things like a turntable, maybe a cassette player, but I agree, can sound like something a bit archaic.

lol It was a joke, Fred is into history - I was trying to draw attention to the real 45,000 year old vulture bone carved into a flute, and how we lived in caves then, and made music.
We've come a long way :-)) btw the new LPs are Very lightweight

I also remember 8-tracks - a huge box of them, glad they're gone. Love my LPs but I appreciate the convenience of later tech and not having to always flip 'em.

I still see these at flea markets and other such places at times. Must be a niche group of folk who still collect them.
