Vinylmania, the dance institution in New York City is to close this weekend. Now if that isn’t sad enough, check this, from Keith Thompson who sang on, what to me is one of the most perfect house records of all time.
… but Vinylmania sold close to 13,000 of “Break 4 Love” when it first came out on Grove St. in 1987
13,000! From one, very small record shop – few dance records on vinyl sell 1000 worldwide these days. Aly Us’ classic Follow Me is reputed to have sold in excess of 100,000 on vinyl in the early nineties – how things change. I feel old.
Ok, I’m over that now…
