Vinyl has best sales for 25 years

1 Comment

P1030382More than 3 million vinyl records were sold last year, the highest number since 1991, and the ninth consecutive year of growth.

And the best-selling artists were:

  1. David Bowie with Blackstar
  2. Amy Winehouse with Back to Black
  3. Various artists, Guardians of the Galaxy Mix 1
  4. Radiohead with a Moon shaped pool
  5. Fleetwood Mac with Rumours

A new generation of music lovers is learning the sensual pleasures associated with vinyl and record sleeves; retro record players are everywhere, and supermarkets like Tesco and Sainsbury’s are selling a selection of vinyl too. Events like Record Store Day help too.

Streaming however continues to grow with a billion audio streams recorded in one week recently and accounts for more than a third of British music consumption .
