Its a trend now
More and more bands are releasing on vinyl as collector series. The industry I work in has seen bands re-release vinyl that they brought our up to 40 years ago, with much better productions from the original masters. It is a limited market, as you said, but it's there and getting stronger. a band I manage in UK has just released their new CD on vinyl as well, I was surprised to see it take on so well, in fact we will expand pressing now due to high demand, but I can't see that happening for their US sales.
