Vinyl records spin back into vogue – USATODAY.com.CEDAR CITY, Utah — As both a music lover and record store owner, Tim Cretsinger is excited about the recent resurgence of vinyl record albums.

“This is my favorite thing to do — hold a batch of records like this,” Cretsinger, owner of Groovacious in Cedar City, Utah, says as he hugged a stack of new records close to his chest. “It reminds me of the old days.”

The old days are making a comeback.

According to recent Nielsen SoundScan numbers, vinyl was the fastest-growing musical format in 2010, with 2.8 million units sold, the format’s best year since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991.

Vinyl’s increase in popularity is providing a beacon of hope for independent record stores — an industry that has suffered with the increase of digital downloads this past decade.
