Some like charts others have no interest, but whatever your stance on this there has been some good work going on to include Independent stores in the equation.
So if you want a peek at whats going up or down we have included a link for you to see for yourself. http://www.officialcharts.com/record-store-albums-chart/
Sales are collected for the charts from all significant retailers.
These retailers span independent stores, high street chains, supermarkets, internet mail order and download services. As a result, it is estimated that around 99% of all singles sold, 98% of all albums and over 90% of all videos/DVDs are captured, enabling the compliation of these charts.
If you visit the site you will find all you need to know about the new charts.
