Vinyl record sales hit an 18-year high

In 2014 you'd be forgiven for thinking the music industry is all about online charts and digital downloads, but the latest figures released by the Official Charts Company reveal a corresponding boom in vinyl record sales which have reached an 18-year high.

More than one million records have been sold in the UK so far this year – a number which is expected to rise even further by the end of Christmas. We haven't bought that many since 1996, back when cassette tapes were still considered technologically advanced...

Sales have been driven primarily by the Arctic Monkeys (whose LP AM is the biggest selling vinyl of 2014), Jack White and Pink Floyd, with Oasis, Status Quo and David Bowie also contributing to the impressive figures. ...

What is so hard to comprehend that records can be recorded to blank cassette tapes to listen to in the automobile or elsewhere? And records can't be scratched if they are handled properly to avoid being scratched.

J4J, you mean people on a drug high will really enjoy watching a disk spin around No, telling, from he list of performers given, I would think many of the people who buy such stuff could very well be on drugs.

Yes, records certainly can wear out! Needles can wear out--ah the ones that play records , and even turntables have to be taken care of. There are lostless digital formats such as FLAC. I keep ignoring Apple types, so I found this rather old, but probably not out dated thread on, Converting FLAC audio to Mp4/AIFF/mp3/m4a/etc for iPhone with minimum quality loss. Never ever even own an iPod, though I have other MP3 players, Apple tends to be overlooked by me.

Anyway, to play records right it takes more than an iPod.

Jim Lincoln...

I remember back in the 90's that Sony had some mini disc, but they didn't sell to well.

I heard from an old audiophile that records were better because they had more dynamic range to them. Higher highs and lower low's. I think the problem was that they scratch and are not as portable.

Looking at the list of music people are buying, I wonder if the increase in record sales correlates to the increase in drug use?

"Q: What is the best way to store audio tape (temperature, containers. etc.) to maintain integrity of the tape itself? I have nine cassette tapes of my grandfather narrating his life story. I've transferred them to CD and mp3, but I don't know if the original exists, so I'm concerned about keeping the tape's integrity for as long as possible." excerpt from, Preserving your treasures Oh, you might want to look at, Care, Handling, and Storage of Audio Visual Materials. You had better start thinking along these lines John Y., since you seem to be an archivist at heart.

I have a compact disc player and several compact discs. I also have records(33, 45 and 78), cassette tapes and 8 track tapes. I also have an 8 track tape recorder/player and several blank 8 track tapes that I plan to record to from records one of these days. But I like the records, cassette tapes and 8 track tapes that I have better than the compact discs that I have.

Vinyl was fantastic for playing backwards. Play a blues record backwards and you get rich, your dog comes back to life & your wife returns :-)

I hope you're right, John. I sure never feel like a Saint Christopher here on planet earth. More like a steaming pile of refuse at a landfill...ha-ha. : /
Your little story reminds me of my "theory" that God calls everyone; giving everyone a chance to come to Him in one way or another throughout life. This "theory" also leads me to believe that those who die young, not having time on their side to come to Him, would have never come to Him anyway. This is how I reconcile an 80yr who is allowed to live a full, wicked life, but turns their life over, finally, to Him, very late in life, and the 19yr old who dies of a drug overdose, or whatever. Theory may be a wrong word.
I know it's difficult, Chris. If we look at it from our side, it often appears to be wrong. But in Michael's "Revival Hymn", Paris Reidhead tells it like it is. That it is not good people being saved from a bad and vindictive God, but bad people being saved by a merciful and good and gracious God. This thinking assists us in not going down the route of questioning the behaviour of the Lord God Almighty.

John You Kay...hello! I agree about the uniqueness of vinyl and have been thinking lately of searching fir an old school player. Personally, I like the scratchy imperfections. Maybe it reminds me of simpler times. I have loads of records I got from my wifes grandfather. 33's, 45's,78's, and some odd sized ones that are very thick...must be pretty old.

Good morning bro. You know you are called Saint Christopher in heaven?

When my age was still in single figures, I used to sit up in the attic playing old vinyls on a windup gramophone. That was where the Lord Jesus first spoke to me, although I did not know about him at the time. It was through a piece from Handel's Messiah called "He shall feed his flock like a shepherd". At the time I thought it was the most wonderful thing I ever heard in my life. And I wondered about "the shepherd".

You may even find something similar in that collection you've got.

John, the reason records sound better than CD's is because of the imperfections. It is just the same with guitar amplifiers: the old valve (tube) amplifiers sounded so much better than the modern solid state amplifiers, because they could not reproduce perfectly, they introduced harmonic distortion, which thing was great to a guitar player. Even today, some guitar players will only use valve combos.

What a waste of vinyl. Re-release of Hank Williams, Enrico Caruso, or Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops would make more sense. The noise mentioned in the SA thread certainly doesn't need to be in hi-fi.
I hate to tell people this I wonder they could make a tiny record player that would fit into an mp3 player, the standard hi-fi set and turntable may be good exercise lugging to the gym, but many people wouldn't appreciate the space they would take up.
