The vinyl record has been the main vehicle for the commercial distribution of pop music from the 1950s until they were replaced by the Compact Disc. CDs didn’t keep it up for so long. Since the early 2000s, CDS have been largely replaced by digital downloads and mp3 players. Conversely, vinyl sales have begun to grow. Vinyl is more popular then ever! The revival of vinyl is considered to be part of the greater revival of retro style, since many of today’s vinyl buyers are way too young to remember listening to them back then.
