The Ambassador of Record Store Day 2012 : Iggy Pop
In an age where our music collections live on hard drives and iPods, it's difficult to believe that record sales have actually been climbing for the past five years. And when we say "record sales," we're talking actual records. You know, those big black discs with grooves in them that are piled in your parents' basement. Even more surprising is that the majority of sales are taking place in independent record stores. According to Nielsen, the stores were the point of sale for 67 percent of all vinyl albums in 2011 and that's even increased already this year.
By the end of today, that number will likely be much higher thanks to the Black Friday of Saturdays for record stores: Record Store Day MORE HERE
