   What you fail to realize here is that even though they don't need to 
record twice, it DOES cost a lot of extra money to produce those LPs. The 
problem is that there simply aren't very many people who have turntables 
anymore, so the record company would actually lose money by producing a 
bunch of LPs that very few people would buy. In order to get past the 
overhead of producing them they would need to sell a certain amount, and 
that just wouldn't happen. So none of them make LPs anymore.
