Happy Birthday to the LP – now 70!

Yep, it’s now 70 years since the LP (Long Player) vinyl record first appeared, along with its smaller grooves and slower speed (33 1/3 rpm). It was a revolution at the time, replacing the phonograph records made of shellac.

It’s strange to think that lots of other formats have come and gone over the years (floppy disks, VHS etc) but the humble LP is still going strong.
