Jack White’s Blunderbuss is not just your favorite album of 2012. It’s also the best-selling piece of vinyl in forever — or, at least since Soundscan began specifically tracking vinyl sales in 2008. Blunderbuss sold over 33,000 copies since its release in April 2012.

Revisit Blunderbuss below via Rdio, and order your very own vinyl copy here.

This is the most misleading headline I have ever read. (I only started keeping track of misleading headlines yesterday.)

I don’t think so. There’s no data beyond 2008. It could be the best selling album since 1988 for all we know!

And that means you don’t know for a fact that it’s be most selling vinyl in “forever”, which is what the title is stating. You do know for a fact, though, that it’s the most selling vinyl since 2008. Thus the title is wrong.

On another note, I think it’s a brilliant album and deserves this :)

I was joking. However, the story is misleading. What you mean to say is Blunderbuss had the best single year sales for a new release since 2008.

Billboard reported that in 2011 Abbey Road sold 41,000 copies on vinyl. Does that factor into “forever?”
