London (Bbc): This year's Record Store Day , on 19 April, saw a surge in vinyl sales , with an increase of 133% on the previous week, industry figures reveal. Led by a reissue of The Stone Roses' debut album, vinyl sales grew by more than 62% compared to 2013, with 12-inch single sales growing by 15.4% alone. However, 7-inch vinyl sales fell by 28%, partly because fewer records were released in the format.
The figures are in keeping with the US, where week-on-week sales grew by 91%.  Nielsen Entertainment called it ‘the most successful Record Store Day ever for vinyl’, with LP sales up 58% over the same week last year.
