cherry picked or not they are still facts

Can you explain why the LP is still around?

My point was that the market wants it. Pretty simple and there should be no argument there.

Where there might be a bit of an argument is the why of it. Clearly the size is helpful for artwork, but IME with local musicians and the local music scene here in the Twin Cities is that the local bands like the LP because it sounds better. Sure- they will do CD too, but in this town, you've not really 'arrived' unless you have vinyl.

So that could simply be a status thing. But its going on all over the US. And almost any article you can find about the resurgence of the LP usually mentions the smoother 'rounder' (if you'll pardon the expression) sound of the media. So the sound seems to have something to do with it.
