英会話ブログ その560     Why people still buy Records (1)

2014/12/28

In the music business, most news in recent years has been bad: sales of CDs are down a lot, concert revenues also down, even downloading isn't as popular as before.

In fact, a surprisingly large number of young people now say music isn't a major part of their lives.

Only one area of music sales have seen an increase in the last couple of years: Vinyl LPs !

Vinyl LPs, Long-Playing (LP) records made of a kind of plastic (Vinyl) are an old-fashioned technology indeed.  For young people, they are the big, flat, round things their parents or enen grandparents keep in a box in the closet, and whose covers contain images of singers and groups from ancient times.  (Well, the 1970s or 80s)                       (G.K)
