A big music year for Jackson, Boyle, Swift, digital downloads… and vinyl?

"2009 music purchases in the U.S. were up 2.1% over 2008 figures, marking the second year in a row that sales exceeded 1.5B units sold according to Nielsen SoundScan. The data covers a 52-week period from January 5, 2009 through January 3, 2010. Driving the growth was a record-breaking year for digital downloads as music fans picked up 1.16 billion digital tracks (an 8.3% jump from the prior year) and 76.4 million digital albums (up 16.1%)" - Nielsen
