LPs everywhere at Bristol show

It seems that the world of vinyl is far from dead. At least judging by the number of LPs for sale at the Bristol Sound & Vision show and the response to our recent article in The Lab, the response to which has been overwhelming.

Walking around the show there were at least four stands selling LPs, ranging from the known audiophile classics such as Kind of Blue and Dark Side of the Moon to the latest releases. And each of the stands we visited was populated with people. And they weren’t just browsing either, as the bar and refreshment area was crowded with people clutching plastic bags stuffed with LPs.

Plus, in a time when local record stores are sadly going out of business all over the country, we spoke to someone planning on opening up a new store in Wales, just to serve the growing demand for vinyl.

It looks as though vinyl could outlive the Compact Disc that was supposed to kill it off once and for all.
