LP's Are Making A Comeback

Can you believe that LP's, that bastion of old school music, are coming back? It seems they are growing, albeit slightly, beyond the kitsch factor again. Here are some fun numbers from 2008 (stolen from Rolling Stone):

  • Radiohead sold 25,800 of In Rainbows
  • Abbey Road, the Beatles album, still sold 16,500 copies.
  • Chinese Democracy sold 13,600 (and still sucked) for Axl N Roses.
  • Portishead sold 12,300 copies of its third album, Third.

It should be noted that Chinese Democracy was only available at Best Buy. I wonder if they sell a record player at Best Buy?
