With the amazing technology available to us today many would have expected the vinyl to remain a thing of the past.

However, a sudden resurgence in sales has seen both hipsters and oldies rushing to collect the latest as well as classic songs on vinyl.

The huge increase in sales in the UK has been matched overseas, as the vinyl has had even more success across the pond.

Ken Barry, owner of The Record Shop in Bexhill, East Sussex spoke of his excitement over the resurgence of the classic product.

He said: “ Obviously I welcome the comeback of the vinyl owning a record shop and all but I also believe it will be great for music”.

“I’ve never seen the appeal of buying one track on ITunes for 79p when you can go into any record store and get 12 tracks for £1”.

“It’s not just the old artists like the Stones and The Beatles seeing their vinyl sales increasing, its also contemporary artists such as Lana Del Ray and Artic Monkeys”.

With the popularity boom of 2014 it seems it’s not the vinyl frontier for the vintage product.
