Vinyl Record Sales Are At A 28-Year High

The Biebs is just one of hundreds of artists who will be releasing vinyl albums on Record Store Day. Fans of the recently departed David Bowie will have a chance to get a limited edition pressing of six songs from very early in his career on I Dig Everything – The Pye Singles 1966. (Only 7,500 copies are being made.) There will be a new release of archived material from The Doors, Bob Dylan and a 1977 performance from The Grateful Dead. Even The Monkees are releasing a 10-LP box set of their studio albums and rare tracks.

And experts say don’t be surprised if vinyl continues to see noticeable growth in the years to come.

“It would seem that they are bringing the products back to create or capitalize on a nostaglia wave,” says Barbara Kraus, director of research at Parks Associates. “It also creates a new experience for people who were born during the digital age.”
