Maybe they have not yet realized LP has two sides

The resurgence in vinyl during a period of declining sales has been one of the music industry's more surprising success stories......accounting for almost 3% of the UK music market.
The funny thing is vinyl zealots are either goinf deaf or were born long after the vinyl era: my ignorant take at least.
Specifically, I would like it if they all sold their LPs to Alan's Records in Finchley, North London (my nearest, hint, hint).
I love albums, and there's something that I find inherently pleasing about a format which is designed for listening from start to finish (with a flip in the middle of course, or often likely a flip and a record change with modern album lengths). A format where it's easier to just listen to a track then try to fiddle about seeing to the start of the next one. Even though I rarely reach for the skip button on digital formats, there's just something about that that has nothing to do with sound and everything to do with where my head is at when listening to a record.
I bought the special edition of the last Motörhead album.It came as a boxed set with an LP, a CD and a download code.
Once you have the music on file, the physical format is really merchandise,
