Vinyl Making A Come Back?

Mashable is now reporting :

"Vinyl record sales have increased 55% this year in the UK, demonstrating that the legacy technology still has a niche in the market."

The article points at nostalgia as being a contributing factor. Surely all of you can relate!?

Don't call it a come back....

When I was in high school there were only 2 places in Houston where I could buy new vinyl, now my local Best Buy has a vinyl section. I think part of the new popularity is a lot of labels are re-releasing bands entire catalogs, like the Ramone's and Smith's who's fans are already vinyl lovers. Most current vinyl comes with download cards which I think helps sales too. Hopefully the trend will continue.
