The Official Charts Company has published some charts showing the UK’s best-selling vinyl albums and singles for the first half of 2020. Despite everything, vinyl sales look set to increase for their thirteenth consecutive year. Well, I guess if everyone’s stuck at home, it’s been a great time to be boosting your collection. Especially with local record shops doing home delivery during lockdown.

Classic albums from Fleetwood Mac, Amy Winehouse and Nirvana dominate the top end of that chart. The biggest selling new release is the still fresh out ‘Chromatica’ by Lady Gaga. That particular LP has shifted 11,200 copies – enough to give one to every woman over the age of 90 in Kent. You know, just to put it in perspective.

Over in the vinyl singles chart, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are at number one with ‘Blue Moon Rising’. He beat’s Blur’s ‘Girls & Boys’, which sits at number five. So maybe that finally answers the Blur v Oasis argument. Glad we can put that one to bed.

I’ve put the top tens below for you, but you can see the full top 40 charts here.
