Vinyl Comeback As Sales Increase
A vinyl revival is gaining pace as more musicians choose to put their work on record and fans rediscover a format that was gathering dust.
In 2007, album sales had fallen to just 200,000 a year, but this year 10 times as many records look set to be sold, despite the popularity of physical formats such as CDs falling.
London-based jazz duo Binker and Moses were in no doubt about going for vinyl when making their first album.
"Being a musician, I understand what it's like to really hear music and appreciate how it should be heard, particularly with the acoustic kind of music we play," said drummer Moses Boyd.
"I think vinyl is a cut above the rest, compared to streaming and MP3."
