Folha OnLine - A indústria do vinil deu novo sinal de vida em 2008. Com 1,8 milhão de unidades vendidas nos Estados Unidos no ano passado, a comercialização de LPs cresceu 89% em relação a 2007, quando 990 mil unidades saíram das prateleiras. De acordo com levantamento da SoundScan, o recorde anterior é do ano 2000, quando cerca de 1,5 milhão de LPs foram vendidos.
