Vinyl is still king



The Straight Goods

The article in this week's Straight asserts that "While it might be hyperbolic to suggest that vinyl has single-handedly rescued the world’s brick-and-mortar record stores, the resurgence of a format once considered dead has certainly helped." This is high praise for a medium that we favour for our artists recordings – at CMR Label the Straight article was good news indeed.

According to the article which was written by Mike Usinger, "Over the years, it’s (the industry) seen numerous changes in buying habits, with CDs wiping out vinyl in the mid-’80s, Napster torpedoing CD sales in the early ’00s, and vinyl making a roaring comeback over the past half-decade."
