Resurgence of vinyl

Are vinyl LPs making a comeback? Yes, according to this article at Reuters. A select group of music artists including Coldplay and Radiohead are having albums released in August.

Labels up volume on vinyl releases to meet demand

By Ed Christman

NEW YORK (Billboard) – It may have seemed like a fad at first, but the resurgence of vinyl is now turning into a nice niche business for the major labels. With EMI’s announcement that it would reissue eight classic albums in the format, all four majors are now onboard the vinyl bandwagon.

EMI will release two Coldplay albums, four Radiohead titles and Steve Miller’s “Greatest Hits” on August 19. Universal Music Enterprises will release 20 albums on vinyl this month and an additional 20 at the end of August, while Warner Music Group will issue 24 to 30 albums from its catalog and 10 to 12 new releases from September through the end of the year, according to executives at those companies.

Whoever thought albums would make a comeback? Even though cds have been popular since the late 80’s/early 90’s, up until the late 90’s I still had a habit of saying so and so has an album coming out.  I still have my album collection. There’s no way I was gonna get rid of my albums. I have albums, cassettes and cds. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I bought a new record player which plays vinyl, cassettes and cds. Before that, the last time I owned a record player was back in the early 90’s.
