First-half music industry revenues increased 5.6% to $5.7 billion with paid streaming subscriptions fueling the growith, more than offsetting revenue declines in other areas of the US recorded music market, according to the RIAA's annual mid-year report.

But that hasn't stopped vinyl records from making a resurgence. This calendar year, vinyl sales have outpaced CD sales in the U.S. for the very first time as the 1980s. Subscription streaming revenues for first-half 2020 were up 14% to $3.8b vs.a comparable period in 2019.

However, the stimulus of vinyl interest is not enough to keep the body selling. In the first half of this year, body sales fell 23% to $ 376 million as the epidemic continued to stifle music industry regulations. Concerts and visits to concerts are all gone.
