Vinyl's comeback just got bigger

For me a love for the feel of holding an album in my hands never left. Sure it was a pain to move all those albums from place to place but once the needle hit the grove all that trouble was forgotten. The sale of vinyl has been steadily increasing throughout recent years to the point where it is now outpacing the sale of CDs. Vinyl sales now represent half of all album sales, digital and physical in the U.S. Last week (Dec. 23) was the high point, over 2.11 million records were bought making it the biggest sales week ever for vinyl. Apparently Santa doesn't mind lugging all those albums around. Excuse me while I go listen to my new vinyl copy of 'Rubber Soul' by the Beatles. Thank you Santa.
