The Future of Vinyl is Black: Black Vinyl’s Biggest Challenge

When you think about vinyl, you probably think of black vinyl.

And it’s hard not to.

Black vinyl is the most popular color in the world, and the blackest.

But in a recent interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep, vinyl pioneer James Turrell was very frank about how the black vinyl industry was being destroyed.

Here’s what he had to say: “The industry is in trouble.

I mean, you’re not losing money when you go to record store, you know, you might lose a little bit of money, and you’re getting a little less money for that. “

I’m gonna say it again: There’s nothing worse than losing money, but there’s also nothing worse to losing a career.

The way the record industry is going, and this is my opinion, is to put the black stuff on black vinyl and just keep selling that. “

But in terms of losing a record, the biggest thing that I think is really unfortunate is the blackness of vinyl.

The way the record industry is going, and this is my opinion, is to put the black stuff on black vinyl and just keep selling that.

You’ve gotta stop it, because this is destroying the industry. “

You’ve gotta start somewhere.

You’ve gotta stop it, because this is destroying the industry.

It’s just, you can’t just do it.”

As Turrell explained to Inskeep on NPR, there are two ways to save the black record industry.

One is to change the way you sell records.

That’s what James Turris said he’d like to see happen.

“We’ve got to start changing the way we sell records, because we’re losing a ton of money.

And if you start saying ‘That’s black,’ that’s going to be the problem, and then you’re going to have a huge problem. “

You can’t put it on black because that’s what everybody is going to think.

And if you start saying ‘That’s black,’ that’s going to be the problem, and then you’re going to have a huge problem.

I’m saying this because I’ve been in the industry my whole life, I’ve seen black records sold to a black buyer and to a white buyer. “

The second thing is that we have to stop this process of going down the black and white route.

I’m saying this because I’ve been in the industry my whole life, I’ve seen black records sold to a black buyer and to a white buyer.

And yet, we’re still not putting black stuff in black and whites.

And the reason for that is because of stigma.

And for me, that stigma, that is the biggest challenge.”

James Turrett’s interview with Steve Insall is available for free on NPR’s podcast This American Life.
