Howard Jones: Young People seem to prefer downloads and CD players may be becoming obsolete. Older people (myself included) seem to prefer to own something physical

I think younger people do, too. At least those seriously interested in music. From about 8-9 years ago, many of the young indie bands I came into contact with, had started releasing limited edition VINYL versions of their EPs, albums and even occasional singles.

Over the last 2-3 years the trend has grown massively. All my kids and most of their friends have turntables as part of their music systems. I have to take inventories of my own vinyl collection when any of my children have visited, as there is a tendency for them to walk!

OTOH, I've yet to encounter any folk artistes releasing new albums on vinyl :-) .
