Turning Back the Clock

This is news to me. Vinyl records are on the comeback? Turns out this display-- in a Barnes and Noble book store in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles--is telling the truth. Some research reveals vinyl record sales are have increased the last few years. I always enjoyed buying that format --pretty much wiped out when CD's became popular in the 80's--because of the artwork, photography and extras that came with the package. Remember the ones that opened into almost poster size? At Los Angeles Valley College -- in the Art Department hallways--there's a display of the album artwork from the Bluenote Jazz label like the John Coltrane LP seen here. Cool.
