Speaking about the success of vinyl, Gennaro Castaldo of the BPI says “It’s wonderful to see demand for vinyl continuing to grow, and promotional events like hmv’s Vinyl Week can only serve to excite further interest from music fans young and old. With LP sales so far this year continuing on their upward trend, the UK vinyl market in 2017 is well on course to record a 10th consecutive year of growth and around 4 million unit sales over the 12 months.”
