This year's must have item might be found in your garage or shed.
We could not be more cutting edge if you now dig out your old fashioned turntable and your old vinyls. (If you have not send them off to the charity shop or teh tip)
Old fashioned vinyl sales have crept higher in the last five years and now also major retailers have taken a note. For example large grocer Tesco is now stocing selection of vinyls.
Last year 2015, department store John Lewis announced a 240 per cent jump in turntable sales in the first quarter, compared to the same period in 2014. We also now have a successful Record Store Day in the UK and an official chart for the retro music format. Year 2014 witnessed vinyl LP sales reaching a 20-year high in the UK at 1.29m, according to OfficialCharts.com. This followed seven years of unbroken growth.
In the US, the total value of vinyl shipments was up 52 per cent for the first half of the year, according to the Recording Industry Association of America, a trade organisation that represents the recording industry in the United States. Vinyl accounted for 30 per cent of total physical music shipments by value for that period.
That's real Rock'n Roll!
