Great quote about holding record Introduction (Lede): In recent years some headlines have cast an increase in sales for vinyl LPs — once considered a casualty of the CD era — as something like a beacon of hope for the struggling music industry. The reality isn't all that rosy. Though vinyl sales grew by 14% in 2010, according to Nielsen SoundScan, they still counted for less than one percent of the year's total album sales. Nut Graf: But vinyl has never really gone away. It's just meant different things to different generations. Today, for the most part, that means fans of indie rock. Link for story:
