Recorded Sound - The Evolution of a Revolution

 

Pop music 45 rpms and Long-playing records (LPs) like the Beatles's library of recordings have found new homes in places like Spotify, iTunes and a host of other streaming services and digital processing sources.

 

Factola: In 2015, for the first time, streaming became the largest component of industry revenues, just slightly higher than digital downloads.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recorded sound, however, is still listened to on LPs with more than 17 million LPs sold in 2015.

And as seen in this 2016 Holiday Catalogue for Pottery Barn, vinyl records played on record players can "turn back time."
