The truth about selling vinyl; independents react to Amazon’s 745% rise in record sales

The truth about selling vinyl; independents react to Amazon’s 745% rise in record sales | The music industry in the digital context | Scoop.it

It’s been another strong week for Amazon. First they announce a 100% rise in vinyl sales on last year from their UK outpost Amazon.co.uk, then they unleash the headline-grabbing stat that US sales of physical records are up 745% since 2008. And yet, perhaps the greatest success of the last seven days has been cosmetic rather than economic – Amazon’s gains are being celebrated as positive for the music industry at large.
