So it’s more than obvious nobody cares about CDs anymore. Technology waits for no man, and with new advances that threaten older formats every day it was only a matter of time before we moved from vinyl records to 8-tracks to tapes to CDs to MP3s to…vinyl records.
Not one to sleep on vinyl’s resurgence (considering their iconic office building was created to look like a stack of records…), Capitol Records are on the move to re-release your favorite albums of yore on vinyl. Remember when you replaced your Pet Sounds original print with a new CD? Get ready to start switching your catalog back to records everyone…
