    Once again, and for the third year in a row, The Beatles’ classic 1969 album, Abbey Road, held on to the title of the top-selling vinyl album of the year. Bucking industry trends, the album sold more this year than in previous years, as well, so what's old is new again. SoundScan stats indicate that the release sold 41,000 copies in 2011. It sold 35,000 in 2010 and 34,800 in 2009. So that was a sales boost! We love it.

    What is your favorite piece of vinyl? What is your favorite album by The Beatles?
