                    Is it time to dust off the turntable, albums?

                    To many in the younger generation, an “album” is a collection of songs, almost always on a compact disc.

Perhaps there’s a return coming to the days of vinyl and real album covers; one local store that just opened certainly hopes so. (March 5, 2012, Page 4A)
