Re-Birth of the Vinyl Record

I live in Oregon, the home of Fred Meyer one-stop shopping.  This company (now owned by Kroger) hit the national news last week all because an employee marked the wrong box while ordering the new REM album “Accelerate” – and that’s what he got…..vinyl record albums rather than CD’s.  The warehouse shipped the albums out and some of the stores put them on the shelves.  The rest is history, and you know it.  What happened before is happening again – albums sold and sold well. Fred Meyer is now really testing the market.  They are placing 20 different albums in 60 stores.  These albums range from The Beatles “Abbey Road” to the new Raconteurs 180 gram vinyl. The response thus far has been what some of us expected – they are selling.  The public loves records, always has and always will.

Being a child of the ’60’s, seeing this resurgence thrills me as I reminisce my way through decades of what is now musical history.  Both digital downloads and CD sales are experiencing a down turn.  Shoppers want to buy an experience.  Buying vinyl provides that sensory experience: sound, touch and feel and seeing that black vinyl spiining on the turntable. 

Visit my store Gosinta for vintage vinyl and wax plus a great selection of new Crosley turntables.
