Vinyl Is Selling So Well That It’s Getting Hard to Sell Vinyl
Neat piece from The New York Times on the current state of vinyl. It specifically focuses on how demand for vinyl record production has outpaced the available manufacturing resources over the last few years.
Left for dead in the 1980s, vinyl records are now the music industry’s most popular and highest-grossing physical format. Getting them manufactured, however, is increasingly a challenge.
