Still on the up..

NME saying the below

UK vinyl sales in 2020 are the highest since the early ’90s

Aided by campaigns such as LoveRecordStores, Record Store Day and National Album Day

End-of-year figures released by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) show that sales have soared despite two national coronavirus lockdowns, with vinyl sales growing for the 13th year running.

This year also saw vinyl outsell CDs for the first time since the 1980s. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), vinyl contributed a staggering $232 million (£181 million) to total physical sales of $376 million (£278 million) in the first half of 2020.

Meanwhile, last week saw the United States sell the most amount of vinyl records in history in a single week. The pre-Christmas rush saw nearly 2 million LPs sold across the country.
