The compact disc had a great run, from its introduction in December 1982 until sales started to plummet in the mid-aughts. That death spiral continues today with sales of the once-dead vinyl format outgrossing revenues from CDs. And when it comes to big, sprawling box sets, the emphasis is on the vinyl instead of the CDs.
In short, it seems that the CD is now the Voldemort of the music industry. Or is it?
