US sales of vinyl LP records rose just 1% in the first half of 2022, suggesting a cooling after years of dramatic growth and a spike during the pandemic.
About 19.4 million vinyl LP records were sold in the six months that ended June 30, up from 19.2 million in the year-earlier period, according to Luminate Data. That follows a more than 51% surge in annual sales in 2021.
