    Vinyl sales of music overall are up because now you have indie kids or people who like Foo Fighters or whatever buying vinyl. If that stat was for D&B vinyl it be more like Vinyl sales have gone down 127%. lol

    easier said than done, alot of work/money needed to distribute vinyl, but yes it is good to see that vinyl sales are still at a high!
