|At no. 4: "Abbey Road" returns!|
Before the vinyl resurrection hit us, Abbey Road was a steady seller, topping the annual sales list for vinyl albums in 2009 (34,800 copies), 2010 (35,000 copies) and 2011 (41, 000 copies. In 2008, Abbey Road was the second-highest selling vinyl album, with 16,500 copies sold.
|A Deluxe vinyl box, featuring the album and a t-shirt probably boosted the 2009 sales of Abbey Road.|
But now it's back on the list again, having sold 38,200 in the past year, which places it at no. 4 in the charts. And this without it being part of the big Beatles vinyl releases of 2014, the remastered mono albums. Good to see you back, Abbey! Vinyl made a big comeback last year, and grew by 52 percent in 2014 to 9.2 million copies sold, up from 6.1 million in 2013.
Despite vinyl's growth in popularity, it still counted for just 3.6 % of overall US album sales in 2014.
