Hello,

I'm currently writing my dissertation about Motown and it's rise and fall. I know as the 33 1/2 RPM LP started to rise in popularity around the late 60s and throughout the 70s single sales began to fall, does anyone know anything more about this? or know of any good writing/figures that I can use to research and prove this?


Thanks,

Philip

Dunno if this will help or not, but a good chunk of Billboard magazines can be viewed here:

A lot of times there are articles talking about the ups and downs of record sales. You might be able to find some useful vintage information.

Good luck! Sounds like an interesting topic.

Here is an online University mag. This theme is all on music, records, record stores, our library record archive and music festivals here in Florida.

Here is another link ...just in case. http://upressonline.com/print/
