The CHART!
What a week! The week of Record Store Day is always an amazing thing. We get folks in trying to beat the rush, knowing the store will be incredibly picked-over on the big day so we get a pre-RSD bump and then RSD itself brings the vinyl-loving hordes and it's a feeding frenzy unlike anything else we see all year, including Christmas! So here are our charts reflecting all that activity. Needtobreathe grabs top honors on all fronts with their hundreds and hundreds of fans descending on us for their performance and meet & greet/autograph signing on Saturday. Our "regular" chart shows all the non-RSD activity as usual, with combined CD & vinyl sales. The vinyl chart this week goes all the way to 50 and is almost exclusively populated with RSD titles which are marked with an asterisk(*). Here are the best-selling titles this past week at Grimey's:
