music industry change visualizationsPosted: May 24, 2011 | Author: Sideb0ard | Filed under: future, history, music, visualization | Leave a comment »
couple of nice visualizations I’ve come across recently..
First one is a graph of vinyl record sales from 1973-2010..
“In 2010, vinyl shipments were 4 million, according to US-based data tracked by the RIAA. In 1977, that figure was 344 million. This also may not be the first bout of nostalgia: in 1998, sales were 3.4 million, while the 2009 tally was 3.2 million.” Digital Music News
This second graph puts those vinyl sales into perspective amongst the highwater mark of CD sales..
