MP3 may be convenient, but vinyl is still the superior format! Music-lovers know this and helped make this new record possible. For the first time since Billboard began electronically tracking music sales, vinyl records have hit a sales record of 973,000 vinyl albums! That means, more people bought records in the week of December 19th than any other week throughout the 2010’s, 2000’s AND 1990’s.
Some of the top-selling albums from that week include The Beatles‘ Abbey Road, the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack, Queen‘s Greatest Hits, Michael Jackson‘s Thriller and Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours.
