. However, CDs have seen the most growth in sales

• The Discogs Database has shown growth year-over-year (+8.22%), with a total of
698,301 submissions during the fi rst half of 2017. The highest number of submissions
were of the vinyl variety with a total of 318,238

it always seeks the deepest place,
which is always below in the darkness
and heaviness of the earth.-
