H&H: Albums

On the Turntable

Our Local Spins space tracks top-selling local recordings, and the list is astonishing for the sheer number of local recordings that have surfaced this year. Among those local top sellers were many that ended up in the rotation of CDs and vinyl that we find ourselves cueing up over and over.
