The No. 1 album for vinyl junkies in 2012 was “Blunderbuss,” the first solo album from Jack White, of White Stripes, Raconteurs and The Dead Weather fame.
According to Nielsen Soundscan’s vinyl charts, the Third Man Records release sold more than 33,000 copies, the highest number for a new album since Soundscan began tracking vinyl in 2008. “Blunderbuss” is nominated for three Grammys, including Album of the Year.
The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” held the top spot the previous three years.
