Vinyl has made an epic comeback in recent years. In fact, 2022 marked the first time since 1987 that vinyl albums outsold CDs. According to NPR:
Vinyl revenue grew 17% and topped $1.2 billion last year, making up nearly three-quarters of the revenue brought in by physical music. The pandemic led to a spike in demand for vinyl records, driven largely by younger buyers.
Even if you're not an avid collector, you can't deny there's something irresistible about flipping through those bins and discovering hidden gems.
