Jack White’s “Blunderbuss” becomes top-selling vinyl LP of 2012By Kelsey Fowler | January 4th, 2013 | 1 Comment »
Jack White’s Grammy-nominated solo debut, “Blunderbuss,” has bested the Beatles. The album sold the most vinyl copies in 2012, taking the title from “Abbey Road”, which was No. 1 for the past three years. “Blunderbuss” numbered 33,000 LPs last year, also making it the highest-selling new album since SoundScan started tracking vinyl figures in 2008.
Jack White is known for his love of vinyl, and several 7-inch and 12-inch versions of the album were released in 2012.
While fans will have to wait until Feb. 10 to see if White snags the win for Album of the Year, here’s hoping he’ll still find time to play a secret show or two at automotive service stations.
