Seem’s as though we all want to live in the past! As we have already said, Vinyl album sales have increased in 2016 but it seems as though another dark ages media has risen from the dead.
Cassette tapes sales grew with an incredible 129,000 copies sold! A 74% increase from 2015 sales. Most of the sales were online with the rest going to small independent retailers.
A few reasons may be because of this, due to Justin Beiber, The Weeknd selling their albums on Cassette tapes and Eminem re-issued The Slim Shady LP cassette selling 3,000 copies. The Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 soundtrack was the most popular, having sold about 4,000 copies each in 2016 and 2015.
