Vinyl Records have increased in popularity over the past decade, I know my self there is nothing like cover art and liner notes that seem to complete the musical experience you go on with the artist. I've not had that connection with a jewel case. The Columbus Dispatch reported on this upcoming exibit saying
"The upswing matches a national spike in vinyl sales: Nine million records were sold in the first half of 2015 (a full tally for the year is expected in mid-March), according to the Recording Industry Association of America. By comparison, 14 million were sold in all of 2014." ( Via the Columbus Dispatch )
