TOP 10 CD ALBUMS ~ 2014

Posted on January 02, 2015 by Irene Hundleby

Here were our TOP 10 CD ALBUMS for 2014!!
Two of our top selling CDs were albums launched at Relics in 2014... thanks HEAPS for hanging out with them and us, and for showing these fab Dunedin / NZ musicians how much you love them !!

 

As with vinyl, we special ordered in a BIG number of CDs for RELICS customers, and it seems by the numbers of orders we took, that this is a service our customers particularly enjoy!! We will do our best to help you find more spectacular music wonders throughout 2015!

 

Again, it is really just AMAZING how many NZ musicians make our top selling 10 CD albums! Perhaps this has a little to do with us being an indie store, but aside from that, an incredible number of GREAT NZ albums were released this year over many different genres...
Here we go...

 

     
IR 77 - Various Artists: Independent Records Sampler CD

 

         
JACK WHITE - Lazaretto CD
