What comes around, goes around - the theory of relativity in a musical context

I was talking to Little John yesterday.  He has a record shop, well half of it's on the pavement outside, and he was standing out in the sun.  We discussed the demise of CDs and the rise of interest in cassettes.  He was saying that vinyl was still going strong although the youngsters had to ask how you could skip to the next track, and had difficulty with the concept that you turned the record over to play the other side.

He then went on to tell me of a friend of his who was selling record carrying cases online. 
One potential customer had queried whether the 12" cases would be big enough for his records as they were 33⅓".  Oh, how we laughed, especially as his 45" records were going to be even smaller!
