more vinyl comeback news

According to a story in the New York Post, Best Buy is planning to offer vinyl recordings in some of their stores.

On the Best Buy website, they do offer some. Also, I found some of the listed available (music) formats interesting:
DVD (17100)
VINYL (4569)
12-Inch Single (1533)
DVD-Audio (415)
DualDisc (360)
Blu-ray Disc (218)

I only was able to find one title that I consider a release of album audio on Blu-ray, and that is “Neil Young: Archives, Vol. 1: 1963-1972“.

Per Amazon.com: “…This Blu Ray disc edition contains 10 discs…9 of these discs hold a total of 128 tracks (12 hidden), all presented in ultra high resolution 24-bit/192 Khz stereo PCM state-of-the-art master quality sound, and featuring nearly 60 previously unreleased songs, versions, mixes, or rare tracks….20 special feature videos, film clips, and film trailers…55 audio tracks of rare interviews, radio spots, and concert raps…image galleries of archival photos, press, lyric manuscripts, documents, biographies, tour dates, and complete lyrics…Each of the 10 Blu Ray discs feature 1920X1080 high definition picture quality…(a Blu Ray disc of) ‘Journey Through The Past’…a digital download card to access MP3 files of all 128 audio tracks…”

It is scheduled to be released June 2.
