Vinyl Making A Comeback
Vinyl records are experincing a resurgance in popularity. Musical groups or artists with predominantly college-age audiences have been having great success in selling their latest albums on vinyl. The New York Times reports that a growing number of classic albums, such as the complete Beatles and early Rolling Stones catalogs, have had vinyl reissues in recent years to cash in on the trend. The only issue now is that companies that used to produce records got rid of their vinyl presses long ago as CDs entered the market and took over, and the most recent presses manufactured came out in 1982. New companies looking to press vinyl must find the old presses and buy them-- the going rate is about 25-thousand-dollars.
And for the 'record', yes that's Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin fame with HIS record collection. How much fun would it be to hear the stories from him about the old albums?
