Silversuit

Vinyl sales made more than downloads last week

This is heart-warming news. I used to listen to vinyl records with friends when I was younger but when the world had already moved to CDs. My friend had a huge vinyl collection and a turntable and hi-fi that did it justice. There was something beautifully ritualistic about it. The form factor made it special. The sheer size of the album, the artwork and the way in which the record could be damaged so easily caused one to treat it with a certain care and reverence. I'm sure it had an effect on the way we listened to the music.
