How to buy and sell valuable vinyl records: expert tips from a rare records expert

We may live in a world of streaming music, but thanks to a growing number of people buying turntables, especially budget turntables (a market that has exploded in the past few years alone), the vinyl resurgence shows little signs of slowing down.

In fact, figures released by the BPI (British Phonographic Industry) in 2018 showed that over 4.1 million vinyl records were sold in 2017. That’s the highest level of sales since the early 1990s, and this year is on track to top that; the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America)’s 2019 mid-year report stated that vinyl records earned $224.1 million in the first half of this year alone.
