Vinyl Records Have Made a Comeback!

What goes around comes around.

Trends have made their way back into mainstream; Nintendo consoles, chokers and Tamagochis; but now it looks vinyl is big once again.

Nielsen Music’s Mid-Year Report is here, tallying the best-selling music releases for the first half of 2018.  A number of contemporary pop and hip-hop acts dominate most of the tallies, some older acts’ catalog releases have made a significant impact on one particular category: the top-selling vinyl albums.
