Record Store Day has come and gone. While we continue to spin our brand-new purchases from this past Saturday (April 18), Bull Moose — whose CEO Chris Brown is also the founder of RSD — and Buzzangle Music have shared sales figures from the 2015 installment of RSD.

According to Buzzangle, record store sales increased 628 percent from the previous week. While that’s a staggering figure, it’s not such a surprise considering RSD brings out fans in the droves, who will wait in lines that round the block in the hopes of snagging some of those hard-to-get, limited-edition releases. Buzzangle also found that Record Store Day is maintaining a steady interest from music buyers, with sales rising 3 percent since last year’s event.

Buzzangle also assessed this year’s top-selling albums, which had the White StripesGet Behind Me Satan at No. 1. It was followed by Metallica’s No Life ‘Til Leather cassette, Run the Jewels’ 12”, David Bowie’s “Changes,” the Black Keys’ “Meet Me in the City” and Father John Misty’s “I Love You, Honeybear.”

Bull Moose had similar top sellers among its stores, with Run the Jewels ranked as the best-selling record of the day. El-P and Killer Mike were followed by the White Stripes’ Get Behind Me Satan, Twenty One PilotsThe LC LP, Phish’s New Year’s Eve 1995 Live at Madison Square Garden, David Bowie’s “Changes” and Bob Dylan’s The Basement Tapes.
