It's cool apparently
I actually like to listen to music.
My teen daughter is telling me that vinyl is now cool, and that prices are increasing.
Personally, I have been maintaining my LP collection, and even boosting it from a specialist record shop in Cheltenham. The irony is that he has got better quality records than those I actually bought from new! My latest acquisitions have been some early Pink Floyd: A Nice Pair (1967, 1968) and Wish You Were Here (replacing my scratched copy).
What has anyone else been buying?
Vinyl's been cool again for years. What's the specialist shop in Cheltenham you use?
It's called The Vinyl Vault. He likes his rock music...
there's been a vinyl revival for at least 15 years
VInyl Vault - I doubt there's much in there that's better quality than can be bought new - he won't have much on 200gsm pressings!
Our son recently got his hands on a record player and is rocking out MrGFB's old Jimmy Hendrix et al!
I buy vinyl. Most new music I buy I buy on vinyl though I download as well, instant access. Keeping music digitally is easy on storage, not so good for relaxed listening in this household. Use the turntable a lot.
With the right gear it's very easy to access music that's stored digitally. With a turntable you're on your feet every 10-20 minutes to change the disc over.
Since moving house a couple of years ago all my vinyl records are in the loft and, considering the complete lack of respect I paid to my parents records when I was a kid, I suspect they will stay there until our kids leave home (in around 2030!)
