Vinyl Record Sales Rise Over 1 Million Units, Nearly...

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (01/05/12)
Soundscan is reporting vinyl record sales of 3.9 million units over the course of 2011, which is a 39.3 percent gain of the 2010 numbers (2.8 million). In the replies you can see a graphic of what the growth of vinyl record sales looks like in bar graph form. I wrote about this topic last year, and a gain of 1 million units over the last year is amazing. Have you started buying vinyl yet?

Started buying vinyl this year and it was a great decision. So much more satisfying than buying music digitally.

I think I bought more vinyl in 2010, but already ordered one for 2012. It makes sense, people would rather go digital than physical, but if they are buying a thing why not get the biggest available for pretty much the same price?

That's great. I feel like vinyl making a comeback would make the culture surrounding music a lot cooler. "hey, man, the wonder years released a 7 inch last week, did ya hear?" "Yeah, man, but I bought AFI's complete discography the other day so I'll have to sleep on that." It seems like a more interesting conversation to have rather than "Yeah, i downloaded some songs the other day."

Fuck yeah. This is what I'm talking about.

Want to start small run releases once I can get some capital saved up. Already have some in mind.

This is awesome. I love buying records. I'm very satisfied as to where my collection is right now, and it is only going to get better.

I buy more vinyl than CD's. Not really sure why though, I hardly ever listen to them on my record player. They're so cool though lol.

I've been buying more lately since a lot of them come with a digital download card.

That's a pretty big deal. I've definitely been spending more on vinyl as of late.
