News on Vinyl
It's these damned Johnny-Come-Lately bearded hipsters, making good vinyl at reasonable prices harder to find.
The vinyl resurgence is good news for emerging artists. They can make $2 to $3 per LP, whereas they see one dollar for every 10,000 downloads. That means they could make as much on a 2500-album run as from 60 million downloaded singles.

The hipsters are my allies. Thanks to them the Technics SL12x0 series stayed in production until 2010. In 2007 I bought a new SL1210 M5G for $500.

Likewise, in 2008 I took a fancy to fedoras. I don't buy the little stingy brim straw or cloth trilbies the hipsters wear; I wear full-size fedoras made of fur felt. But thanks to all the hipsters and their ubiquitous hats, I have no trouble finding the hats *I* want, and nobody looks at me funny for wearing them.
Go Johnny Go !
Ha! Back in the early eighties, when all of the hipsters were opting for "Perfect Sound Forever," I, and my fellow nerds, cleaned up on vinyl at the hipster's garage sales.

Thank you hipsters very much. Your RCA's, Mercury's, Turnabout's, Westminster's, Contemporary's, Blue Note's and Angel's are sounding absolutely amazing on my turntable every night.
That's what the mainstream news has been saying for years. Ever since 1982, actually. What I'd like to know is where is the cassette revolution in the mainstream news?

People are returning to vinyl for better sound and a more involving listener experience (large artwork, legible liner notes). Pre-recorded cassettes offered neither. They were for convenience and mobile sound, not better sound.
Well, they were better sounding than say CDs, that's for Gol Dern sure. Tape, any tape, is a natural medium. It breathes.
