About

The Vinyl Story - Keeping in the Groove

Thanks to all you wonderful backers we have for The Vinyl Story.

We are in the last 24 hours of the campaign and although we have had great response from getting the word out about The Vinyl Story it looks like we won't quite hit the mark.

BUT - we have GOOD NEWS, The Vinyl Story documentary will still be made.

Keep up-to-date at :- https://www.facebook.com/TheVinylStory/

The Vinyl Story is a cram packed 2 hour documentary film that takes you on a nostalgic journey from the origins of Vinyl up to near extinction with the slowdown of sales and releases and then on to the Vinyl Revival we see today.
