There’s no denying that vinyls have made a major comeback in the past few years and the numbers show that things only continue to improve. According to Nielsen, sales of vinyl records have increased a whopping 260% in the United States since 2009. The total vinyl sales for 2014 came in around 9.2 million—a huge jump from 2013’s 6.1 million sales. And in just the first quarter of 2015, vinyl sales have already proven to be an 53% increase from last year.

The charts below gives a better look at just how dramatic the increase in vinyl sales have really been. While a good handful of the vinyl sales come from classic albums from artists such as Bob Marley, the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis, the chart also shows that recent albums have also been doing fairly well. Of the major selling current albums, Lana Del Rey is the only woman on that list—at least for now.
