Whether it’s a turnaround or just a moment of nostalgia, buying the physical record is a great way to support the world of music that has suffered in terms of economy with covid-19.
Also, buying vinyl records is a kind of investment, as they get older in value. I’ll give you an example: Prince’s album, The Black Album, immediately became a cult object among fans because it was withdrawn a few weeks after its release by the will of Prince himself. Having become unobtainable, some time ago a copy was sold to a collector for $ 27,500 a copy. Maybe you should take advantage of the discounts and stock up on collector’s items.
