The consequences were felt on South African marketplace bidorbuy.co.za for years to come. The sales of LPs on the site had dwindled to such an extent that the very existence of a separate category devoted to this “dying” format was called into question.
Then in 2007 the vinyl staged a come-back in the Western world. After some time, the South African market caught on to the trend.
“Our figures show that the sales of LP records on the site began a steady upwards trend a couple of years ago”, says bidorbuy CEO Jaco Jonker. “These days, buyers are five times more likely to put a vinyl into their shopping cart than a digital disc”, he add
Between 500 and 800 LPs are sold on bidorbuy in an average week. “Last week, the sales of vinyl records reached a new peak of 1200 units, while less than 200 CDs were sold in the same period”, says Jonker.
No one can quite explain the surge in popularity of vinyl records, which has been called vinyl revival. What is certain is that on bidorbuy.co.za it has resulted in the rise of the number of sellers who are either specialising exclusively in LPs or are diversifying into LPs.
Among the latter are often sellers of various collectible items. For a good reason. There’s no doubt that the vinyl owes at least a part of its newly-found popularity to an increased number of collectors, some of whom are driven by the nostalgia for the way the music was consumed in their youth.
The bidorbuy CEO Jaco Jonker says that rock and pop genres account for more than a half of vinyl records purchased on bidorbuy. Most of them are second-hand, though some are still sealed. Buyers are somewhat less likely to go for newly pressed versions of old albums, but vinyl issues of contemporary artists have a decent following. The prices of LP records sold on bidorbuy range from about R10 to over R1000, although it is not unusual for some rare issues to go for more than R5000. Jonker adds that the vinyl section has proportionally more overseas buyers than many other sections of the site.
However, many vinyl sellers on bidorbuy point out that it is young people – the population segment referred to as millennials – that constitute the bulk of their buyers. It could be for a number of reasons: because millennials feel that LPs connect them with the past they never experienced, because they consider that LPs have a better audio quality; or because they appreciate the artwork of LP albums. Some point out that the new-found love for vinyl records could be a reaction to ubiquitous downloadable tunes. In any case, there’s no doubt that there is a certain “coolness” factor to big, bulky and beautiful LPs.

The Taj Mahal is one of the most beautiful and costly tombs ever built and there’s a legend that surrounds it. When the favorite wife of Indian ruler Shah Jahan died, he ordered it to be built as a memorial to her. He placed her coffin in the middle of a parcel of land, and construction literally began around it. But several years into the venture, his grief for his wife gave way to his passion for the project. One day while he was surveying the site, he reportedly stumbled over a wooden box and had it thrown out. It was months before he realized it was his wife’s coffin. The original purpose for the memorial got lost in the details of construction! There’s a lesson here: it’s called ‘misplaced values’. If you’re a husband and a father, your wife and children probably appreciate the things you work to provide. But do you know what they really want? You! Your time. Your attention. Your affection! J. Paul Getty was one of the world’s richest men, yet he failed miserably with his own family. He wrote: ‘I’ve never been given to envy, save for the envy I feel toward those people who have the ability to make a marriage work and endure happily. It’s an art I’ve never been able to master.’ So in your quest to build your Taj Mahal, try to remember the purpose for which you are building it. ‘Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.’
Prayer Heavenly Father,
help me to place my family ahead of many of the other things in my life I spend time with
to give them the place they deserve and for me to be refreshed and renewed by them.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen
