Official Vinyl Singles Chart

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Official Vinyl Singles Chart is a weekly record chart in the United Kingdom. It is compiled by the Official Charts Company (OCC) on behalf of the music industry. It lists the top 40 most popular singles in the vinyl format each week. The chart, along with the corresponding Official Vinyl Albums Chart, was launched on 6 April 2015 to coincide with Record Store Day, and was introduced in response to the major rise in popularity of vinyl records, both singles and albums; 2014 saw 1.3 million vinyl albums sold in the UK for the first time since 1995.[1]

Martin Talbot, chief executive of the Official Charts Company, said: "We're delighted to launch the UK’s first Official Vinyl Albums and Official Vinyl Singles charts on, to coincide with Record Store Day this coming weekend. With vinyl album sales up by almost 70% already this year, vinyl junkies could well have snapped up 2 million units by the end of this year – an extraordinary number, if you consider sales were one-tenth of that just six years ago. This growth underlines the continuing resurgence of this much-loved format, whether you're a fan of Arctic Monkeys, Noel Gallagher, Led Zeppelin or David Bowie."[1]

On 12 April 2015, "Baby Wants to Ride" by Frankie Knuckles became the first number one on the Official Vinyl Singles Chart. It was a tribute to Knuckles as it was the first anniversary of his death.[2]
