At Radio 13, we believe that one true indication of good music can be derived from vinyl record sales simply because one has to make an effort to visit a 'brick and mortar' record store and get music in that waxy black (and sometimes colourful) physical format.
As a result, we are introducing a weekly ranking of vinyl LPs with our friends and collaborators at popular record store, Real Groovy, in Auckland, NZ.
So, without further delay... here is the first ranking of best selling vinyl record albums for the week June 22-28th.
10 FLEETWOOD MAC / RUMOURS
9 PINK FLOYD / DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
8 SOUNDTRACK / GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY - AWESOME MIX VOL 1
7 SZA / CTRL
6 ROLLING BLACKOUTS COASTAL FEVER / HOPE DOWNS
5 NOTORIOUS BIG / NOTORIOUS BIG GREATEST HITS
4 KAMASI WASHINGTON / HEAVEN AND EARTH
3 BILLIE EILISH / DON’T SMILE AT ME
2 KANYE WEST / MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASIES
1 GORILLAZ / DEMON DAYS
Coincidentally, Real Groovy is also celebrating their birthday party on June 30th. We cannot think of any good reason why music lovers would miss this opportunity to drink beer, listen to some darn good tunes and enjoy discounts at the store. See you there!
