    I think some people who grew up with them remember how common place records were and think of them as archaic technology. But even if the technology is well over 100 years old, it still costs money to manufacture it. I bet if records stayed as the dominant format of music distribution, we would not notice the gradual rise in prices as much.

    However, I don't buy them because sadly, I don't have the space. So maybe the prices aren't stinging me as much as the people who are collecting. Ha ha.

    Inflation, sure, but no way people were ever paying $30 for a record, CD or tape. They can never be inflated like that. We woulda noticed that and stopped buying them.

    Vinyl is better quality, now, but it's still cheap to produce. Like anything else, supply and demand.
    Very few plants producing, so they can jack the price up.

    VH's performances in Japan on the first tour blow away '89 and 2012, to me.

    But I'll take 2012 over '89.

    Yeah, to be fair, he may have not known that they played Tokyo in '78.

    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    He said "all due respect to both eras". I'm guessing he knows about '78.

    James they also have the "Deluxe version" which is the 4 live Tokyo lps and VH1 and 1984 albums as a pack of 6 for $29.99. Extra bargain - I got the Deluxe last week.

    I own 2 vintage radiograms and am big into vinyl so .....score for me.
