RIAA Reports Sales of Vinyl 45s Grew 99.6 Percent In 2011

Maybe those vinyl snobs we all know and tolerate are actually on to something. According to new data released by the Recording Industry Association of America, United States-based sales of 45s -- called "vinyl singles" in the data -- skyrocketed 99.6 percent in 2011. This is based on the retail price of units shipped, which means this only includes new discs, not used 45s.
