Vinyl is making a comeback #260

"No, those aren’t giant black CDs. They’re called vinyl records. As digital music has become more prevalent, a counter-movement has taken place. Vinyl records, having long been confined to thrift stores and the houses of grandparents, are being embraced by listeners and musicians.

Leader: Vinyl flourishes as store opens in Huddersfield (UK)

"Is vinyl making a comeback? The reality perhaps is that for many, it never went away....

Vinyl Tap was founded 26 years ago by record collector Tony Boothroyd who buys and sells around the world.

The business is a haunt for music collectors worldwide and trades through 20 websites worldwide. It has existed solely online for 12 years but now Tony has reopened a walk-in shop in the heart of the town.

It seems that there is room for old and new technology to exist alongside each other and that for some, vinyl will never go out of style."
