In recent years more and more people have been choosing to buy vinyl records.
Sales have skyrocketed, and vinyl is even set to out-sell CD’s for the first time since 1986.

Sound it Out Records is an independent record shop in Stockton on Tees, selling a vast collection of vinyl from indie and punk, to techno and hip-hop.
Tuxtra’s Ellie Roper went to speak to the owner of Sound it Out, Tom Butchart, about how vinyl has made a comeback.
