Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours came in at at number one, fuelled by new reissues on various coloured vinyl options, followed by Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black at two, and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon at 3.

As to be expected, David Bowie, Prince, Beatles, and Ed Sheeran made multiple appearances on this list as well. Only four of the top 20 best selling vinyl albums were new releases from the past decade, with reissues comprising the additional 16.

The list comes as vinyl sales continue to grow year on year internationally, with Record Store Day Black Friday 2019’s offerings driving the third biggest sales week for vinyl since Nielsen reporting began in 1991. In the US, 855,000 vinyl albums were sold during the week ending on the 5th of December.
