Comeback of the vinyl 45

If the Independent on Sunday is to be believed (and who could doubt such an august institution) the vinyl single is making a comeback. Apparently many of today's bands prefer the format to downloads, CDs and the rest and are releasing their product in the traditional way. I hope so. Like rock and roll itself, it seems that vinyl will never die.

As an aside, it seems, paradoxically, to get harder and harder to sell vinyl on eBay. There's just too much of it around. Having said that, I've just exceeded my record price for an eBay sale: it's almost inevitably a Beatles record - a White Album with a low number ( 0005388) which I bought for £4 and sold for £123. Pic shows the record with one of the original insert photos of George Harrison.
