Last week, more money was made selling physical vinyl than downloads made, just think about that – vinyl is well and truly coming back mostly for the unique sound that digital music takes away. Last week £2.4 million was spent on vinyl and downloads amounted to £2.1 million.

Vinyl costs more

One big thing that stands out is that vinyl versions of albums are much more expensive than CDs and digital downloads, I looked at the Micheal Jackson Dangerous vinyl on Amazon and that’s around £40 and last week’s best selling vinyl was Kate Bush’s Before the Dawn and that comes in at £52 virus £13 for the CD.
