Top Tennin’ Agin’…Top Sales and Dave’s Faves for 2011

Now that computer problems have subsided it’s time to clean up last year as we head into the unknown waters of 2012. First before I give you the list of your Top 10(Biggest sellers at Dave’s for 2011…so it’s really your list!), I need to thank you all for a great end to 2011. I can’t tell you how good it feels to have so many people compliment what you do. As busy as we were you, many of you added to my good cheer for the  season by taking the time to say a nice word to me about what we do here at Dave’s. So back at YOU!! Thanks for being great customers and making this job easy on me for the majority of the 365 days! So first here is your list of favorites for 2011. You bought ’em so you picked the list that follows…

Top 10 Best Sellers at Dave’s Records 2011(in no particular order)

Ryan Adams – Ashes and Fire

Adele – 21

The Black Keys – El Camino

Tom Waits – Bad As Me

My Morning Jacket – Circuital

TV on the Radio – Nine Types of Light

Wilco – A Whole Love

M83 – Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming

Bon Iver – Bon Iver

Good choices all! 

Now you can rank me out for my personal preferences for 2011. This is your chance to see what albums I could not get off the turntable this year. No they weren’t superglued to the platter but close. If you came in this year you most likely said either “WHAT” is that or what is “THAT” because you had ample opportunity to hear them if you stopped in. Comment if you will.
