vinyl albums are seeing a big comeback and CDs fall out of favor, and digital sales continue to dominate. The nostalgic and tactile benefit of vinyl seems to be winning over national acts, local bands, and fans alike.

And for the first time in a while, music sales as a whole are up in the US. Other trends see back catalog sales increasing with the Beatles added to iTunes and shows like American Idol and Glee continuing to bring attention to older genres and artists.

Where do you buy your music?

    I buy cds at JB HiFi and Vinyl from fairs. I will never download music. MP3 has a hiss. (for example – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-9uuxpoaZA&feature=BFa&list=HL1352007727) CD and vinyl versions don’t have that hiss all the way through. Video is obviously from an MP3 format)

    Also, I can’t stand digital and online sales destroying small businesses.

    Not to mention the effect downloading music has had on the music industry. Record companies are considered to be an evil entity, but a lot of the money they make, like any other business,  used to be put back into promoting bands. Anyone remember the 80s?
