Soundscan is reporting vinyl record sales of 3.9 million units over the course of 2011, which is a 39.3 percent gain of the 2010 numbers (2.8 million). In the replies you can see a graphic of what the growth of vinyl record sales looks like in bar graph form. I wrote about this topic last year, and a gain of 1 million units over the last year is amazing. Have you started buying vinyl yet?

If you thought this past week's Soundscan numbers looked a little low, you thought correctly: Best Buy forgot to report last week's sales. The numbers will be re-processed tomorrow evening.
