New York Times article on Gotta Groove Records
Here's a great article from the NY Times on Gotta Groove Records, a record pressing plant in Cleveland. Among other tidbits, the article states that:
"This calendar year, Gotta Groove will turn its first profit, in no small part because the LP is the fastest-growing segment of the beleaguered music industry. Last year, 2.8 million vinyl records were sold in the United States, according to the Nielsen Company, which tracks music sales through its SoundScan system. This year’s numbers are about 40 percent higher, and the real figures are higher still."
Great news for us vinylphiles indeed!
