For The First Time, Records Of The Past Are Outselling New Ones

For the first time since Nielsen Soundscan began keeping track of album sales in 1991, old records have outsold new ones, with the first six months of 2012 seeing album sales of 76.6 million “catalog” records (albums released more than 18 months ago) compared to 73.9 million current albums.

A very interesting fact I think.
