We stock vinyl only.
This isn’t so much a purist decision as a pragmatic one. Vinyl is a “growth sector” as they say in business circles. CDs are in decline somewhat. And I couldn’t afford to duplicate stock by selling everything in more than one format. So we are sticking with vinyl. Because it sounds better, it looks better and it feels better. And it’s just cooler. But other formats may creep in here and there. The occasional CD on special occasions. Cassettes keep threatening to make a resurgence.
And if Radiohead or Sigur Ros chose to release their new album on a USB stick or a washing machine, we’d probably take it.
