Flaming Lips, Rolling Stones top sellers at local record stores

While the Flaming Lips and Stardeath & the White Dwarfs' fascinating interpretation of the Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon has been available on iTunes since December, the colored vinyl version, released on Record Store Day, took the top spot at Twist & Shout and came in third at Independent Records. Record Store Day limited releases dominated the charts at Albums on the Hill, Independent Records and Twist & Shout, which had its best day ever. Rolling Stones' "Plundered My Soul" 7-inch single, an outtake from the Exile on Main Street sessions, and Bruce Springsteen's "Wrecking Ball 10-inch were also strong sellers. See the full breakdown after the jump.
