Dare I be optimistic #2? Albums? Really? Share Thisi

Album sales were actually up 33% from this same period last year. Yes, people still buy albums! According to SoundScan figures, this year U.S. album sales were up at the mid-year point. It’s the first time that has occurred since 2004, the last positive sales-growth year posted by this country’s music industry. Also, in my world of catalog acquisitions, “Deep Catalog” sales are up about 10% from last year.
