Music Sales up for the First time Since 2004!
Okay, most of us are big music fans, but this is an interesting Tidbit…
U.S. music album sales grew in the first six months of the year from a year ago, the first gain since 2004, thanks to rising sales of digital tracks and albums – Makes you wonder if over the last 7 years people have just been “Stealing” music digitally or what the cause was.
Tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan said Wednesday that overall album sales rose nearly 4 percent to 221.5 million units, from 213.6 million a year ago. Maybe it’s because I had to buy “Frampton Comes Alive” for the 3rd time!
Either way, let’s not forget to get our music legally… or be like me, and go buy records for $1 in at the Corner Record Shop in Grandville!
