      This is a link to an SF Examiner interview with Amoeba Records co-owner
      Marc Weinstein. Amoeba is one of the top, if not the best, independent
      records stores in the United States. It's not a perspective we hear from
      often and I think Weinstein is in a unique position to give an experienced
      opinion on the health of vinyl as a medium and the obvious growing
      popularity of electronic and dance music.

      The most interesting quote is this:

      "The vinyl market has grown tremendously in the last 10 years. The record
      industry systematically tried to destroy the market for vinyl and, to a
      great extent, did. But a lot of hard-core collectors and DJs and avid
      listeners still stand by vinyl as the superior medium. I believe vinyl
      sounds better to this day and it has a lot more romance. CD media is kind
      of a hoax. A CD in a jewel case with all the printed matter can be produced
      for about a dollar and they list for about $18.98. Vinyl records cost a lot
      more to produce and typically list for about $8.98."
