There is a serious collector culture around vinyl— so much so that there is even a TED talk about it.  Sometimes called crate digging, dedicated collectors will hunt down rare vinyl records at estate sales and online auctions. There is feverish competition for some of the most popular older albums and just a quick search will show an abundance of vinyl records for sale online. It’s this draw to the physical act of music listening that has made records so popular in the last decade. The LP cover of music lessons boston is also a thing of beauty when done right, and that beauty rarely translates to the smaller CD size.
