If so, you're in good company...a survey from 2016 showed that almost half of the vinyl bought in the UK has never been played.

Well, that's reassuring!

In 2017 I gave myself a Christmas present. I chose six tracks from my album Smoke and had them made into a 10" vinyl album. The company that did this for me (for a price, obviously) was Vinylify

The irony is that I will probably never get to hear these tracks in all their vinyly-distorted glory, as I have absolutely no intention of buying a turntable! grin

Luckily, I have the songs on CD...

They're just waiting to the turntable to arrive from Amazon. I have a few friends who, when they go to a concert, always buy merch - vintage vinyl, cassette CD, but haven't been to a concert where new vinyl is the product yet. These are small concerts, often house concerts or coffee houses, and they do it to put a few extra bucks into what the artists make. If I paid $250 for a ticket to a Rolling Stones concert, doggone if I'd pay another $25 for a new LP. They get paid enough to do the show. wink
