Records Are Setting Records

Records are setting records.

For the first time since the iTunes store started in 2003, sales of downloaded music went down last year.

Sales of CDs took a big dive too, as did music sales overall. But the one bright spot is old-fashioned vinyl records.

LP sales went up 32 percent from 2012, hitting a 22-year high. The format has seen a growing trend that started in the early 90s and really took off in 2007. Vinyl still only accounts for a small portion of music sales, but it's going up while the rest are going down.
