Record Store Day Breaks Record

















The vinyl love-in keeps growing.

Just-released figures from last weekend’s Record Store Day (April 19, 2014) show another huge spike for the vintage format. According to Nielsen/SoundScan, the deeply-grooved delivery system enjoyed a 58% increase in sales on this Record Store Day over that holiday last year.

More broadly, vinyl sales are up 36%, over this same period last year. That’s on top of a 33% spurt in 2013, compared to figures from 2012, which added up to over 6.1 million units. MORE HERE
