Projections from the recording industry have revealed vinyl records are on track to outsell CDs in 2021.

Figures from the Australian Recording Industry Association last year found $29.3 million worth of vinyls were sold, compared to $30.6 million compact discs.

Owner of Greville Records, Bruce Milne, told 6PR’s Gareth Parker vinyl records have seen a resurgence in recent yeas.

“About seven years ago … we were struggling to keep our heads above water,” he said.

“Then slowly things turned around and a whole new generation of people discovered vinyl.”

He said people enjoy having something tangible in a world where everything is online.

“The size of the artwork and just holding something really physical in your hands can be quite thrilling.

“It’s a bit like buying a nice book.”
