And the skills, which may be lost forever, if there isn't an opportunity to re-employ those workers. This will really test the strength of the
vinyl revival. Is the demand and confidence sufficient for investment in this difficult aspect of the supply chain?
But, I appreciated the dark humor of the comment. While reissues have played a vital role in the re-invigoration of the format, so much of the limited LP production capacity has been hogged by major labels and reissues of Classic-Rock, -Jazz, and -Pop targeted to boomers, that many new projects have had to wait months for orders to be filled. Those newer artists can be seen as the essential support for vinyl, long term, after we aging nostalgists shuffle off or that market saturates. So I wouldn't pile on this gentle castigation; it has a point, aside from the unfortunate turn of events.

day after Harry James died, I went down to the local audio store and
bought the last copy of the one Sheffield direct-to-disc-album with him
that I did not have. I paid the same $15.98 that they were asking the
day before he died. I guess I got lucky.
>Mike is right -
this is a very serious loss. And, as I mentioned in my previous email,
not the least of it is the loss of jobs for their employees, jobs that
are likely never to come back.
