"IN 1929, THE AMERICAN RECORD corporation—the company that, after a long chain of mergers and acquisitions, would eventually become Sony Music Entertainment—put out its first record.
Sixty* years after that, having reached the top of the industry, Sony quietly stopped printing records altogether. It was time to evolve, and to leave vinyl behind in favor of their shiny, relatively new invention, the CD.
Earlier today—nearly thirty years later—they took it back. As Agence France-Pressereports, Sony Music Entertainment just announced that they’re going to start making records again, starting next March."
