Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Royal Blood boost vinyl sales

All three are in the top ten for vinyl album sales in 2015 so far.

In the latest set of figures released by the Official Charts Company, 2015 is set to be another growth year for vinyl, with sales increasing by 56.3%. If sales continue to grow at the same rate, they're expected to reach 2 million by the end of the year.

This follows a remakable year for vinyl in 2014, when sales passed the 1 million mark for the first time in 18 years.

In 2015, rock music continues to be responsible for the lion's share of vinyl album units that have been shifted, with Led Zeppelin featuring twice in the top ten for the year-so-far for their re-issues of 'Physical Graffiti' (2) and ''IV/Four Symbols/Zoso/Insert whatever else you like to call their fourth album' (8). Royal Blood also appear with their eponymous debut (5), as does Pink Floyd's 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' (7).
