Our top 50

So, here it is our top best selling vinyl album for 2018.
A great album which benefitted from different pressings- standard black vinyl, coloured vinyl,picture disc,alternative artwork,deluxe editions.
This for us was definately the Year of King Gizzard backed up by recent additional reissues of their early albums.

Note that 0ur Top 50 is purely based on sales which we think is the best reflection of our shops DNA. Everyone will have their own favourites and thats the way it should be.
Anyway here is the full list, below this you will also find best sellers on other formats.
