Are Vinyl Records Headed For The Supermarket?

In what may be a fascinating turn of events, it looks like you may see some vinyl records for sales along with the tabloid papers in the checkout line of you local supermarket before long.

The UK's biggest supermarket chain, Tesco, is going to stock vinyl later this week in a special promotion with Iron Maiden and their first studio record in five years, The Book of Souls.

This is a triple album on Warner's Parlophone label, which is interesting in itself in the Maiden were DIY without a label for a number of years.

This is considered to be a trial run that could see the supermarket chain commit to more vinyl titles and inventory if it goes well.

No doubt supermarket chains in the US are watching this one closely.
