Vinyl Sales

Vinyl sales were up 89% in 2008 compared to the previous year and up 33% in 2009 for 2.5 million vinyl units in 2009 (music sales were 1.5 billion total for 2009). What everyone fails to mention is majors slowed down on pressing vinyl for a few years and now they are doing it again. So albums like the new AC/DC and Guns N Roses are pressed and pushed at retail. Not to mention all the remastered and reissued vinyl that’s happening. But for indie rap music (and probably major rap artists too) I bet it hasn’t changed much percentage wise. Sorry rappers.
