Results from Record Store Day

As Record store was only last week I thought it would be useful to share some of the results from hypebot:

  • Total album sales increased 60% over the previous week
  • Vinyl LPs at independent record stores sold 200,000 units vs. 147,000 units last year
  • 244,000 vinyl albums were sold during the entire week from all retailers
  • Vinyl albums were 37% of all album sales in any format that week
  • 14 vinyl albums sold more than 1,000 copies each
  • 82% of vinyl LPs last week were sold at independent record stores
  • Album sales in all formats at indie stores was up 59% percent over sales from the previous week
