Vinyl albums have a long way to go to catch the sales of their musical counterparts.
There are nearly 20 active record stores in Boston, each selling some form of vinyl.
Overall albums sales in the U.S. have declined over the past two years, while sales of vinyl albums have increased in each of the past seven years.
There are nearly 20 record stores still surviving in Boston, in part because multiple generations of customers still collect vinyl.
Sales of vinyl have increased every year since 2007, dwarfing sales figures from the early 1990’s.
