U.K. vinyl sales are on the increase again in 2014. According to a report in Entertainment Retailers Association, the 2014 numbers have already bested the numbers from last year. So far almost 850 thousand records have been sold in the U.K., and projections from ERA estimates the number will be well over 1 million copies sold by the end of the year. Though the number sounds impressive, it's important to note that vinyl sales account for only 3 percent of the physical album market (compact disc sales account for 97 percent of physical sales).

ERA also published a list of the U.K.'s top ten selling vinyl albums of the year so far.  Interesting to note that only two of the titles were released this year (Lazaretto, Royal Blood), though the Zeppelin releases and Oasis' Definitely Maybe were reissued earlier this year.  It should be fascinating to compare the U.K. list to the top ranking vinyl releases in the U.S. once the data is available.  Take a look at the list below and read the full report in ERA via NME.

01. Arctic Monkeys -- AM
02. Jack White -- Lazaretto
03. Oasis -- Definitely Maybe
04. Royal Blood -- Royal Blood
05. Led Zeppelin -- Led Zeppelin
06. Stone Roses -- Stone Roses
07. Led Zeppelin -- Led Zeppelin III
08. Pink Floyd -- Dark Side Of The Moon
09. Led Zeppelin -- Led Zeppelin II
10. Arctic Monkeys -- Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
