Many younger people have never seen or played a real record – the 7-inch or 12-inch vinyl discs that people bought before CDs and MP3s came along. Maybe many more people think companies no longer make or sell records. They are wrong. Vinyl records are making a comeback and business is booming. This has been helped by the annual Record Store Day – a special day to celebrate independent record stores around the world. This year's Record Store Day was on April 19. Gennaro Castaldo, a spokesperson for Britain's record industry, said: "LP sales doubled in volume last year…and with sales up again this year, we're close to seeing the greatest demand for vinyl recordings in nearly two decades."
Record Store Day was created in the US in 2007. Wikipedia says: "One day every year music fans celebrate the record. Record Store Day, the organization, provides promotions, marketing, and other opportunities forstores throughout the year." This year was the most successful ever. Stores report that sales increased by133 per cent on the previous week. My Castalso said that although vinyl is still popular with baby boomers,many young people are taking to it. He said they are attracted by the shape and packaging of the record and feel it is an important part of the heritage of rock and pop culture. Many people might be surprised that the vinyl record has survived through the digital revolution.
许多年轻人没有见过真正的唱片，在发明CD和MP3之前，人们购买的是7英寸或是12英寸的乙烯基唱片。许多人会认为公司将不再销售唱片 。但是他们错了 。乙烯基唱片又回来了，而且销售很好 。这要归功于一年一度的唱片店日，这是特殊的一天，在这天里人们会庆祝独立唱片商店在全世界的兴起 。今年的唱片店日是在4月19日 。英国唱片产业的发言人卡斯塔尔多说：“去年唱片的销售额翻了一番，今年的销售继续，我们正在接近近20年里，乙烯基唱片需求最火爆的时刻 。
