Currently Booming: Will Columbia House Relaunch Vinyl Service in 2016?

Great news for all of you vinyl lovers out there- 2016 means another vinyl subscription service and it's an old familiar name. Columbia House was a powerhouse music service through out the 80's and 90's and it's back to serve up music again next year. Believe it or not, the company actually only filed for bankruptcy just a few short months ago (who knew it was even still around!) and after being bought out, Columbia House is ready to relaunch itself. 

"You can see a yearning and an interest to try a new format. For a category that is meaningful and growing rapidly, you don't see a whole lot of choice. It's not that digitization is going away. I think there is a sense among a lot of people of looking to get back to the broader experience of engaging with media." says Columbia House owner, John Lippman.

Obviously, digital options lead the way and streaming is usually the way to go because in this day and age none of us like having to wait to hear a particular song. But vinyl really has enjoyed a nifty revival and if you're like me then you've been reminded of just how wonderful those albums really are. Have you started to collect records and if so, do you see yourself circling back to Columbia House?
