According to trade group Soundscan, sales of actual records (yes, vinyl LPs) surged last year to almost 1.9 million units — up from a mere 858,000 in 2007. They’re welcome numbers in a tough time for music companies and artists, though with some 1.1 billion songs sold digitally last year, old fashioned records will likely remain just that — old fashioned!

Remember them?
