Gary Barlow tops Official Record Store Chart
'Since I Saw You Last' rises two places to topple One Direction
The album beat off competition from One Direction and Robbie Williams to land the top spot. The Official Record Store Chart reflects sales in the UK's independent record shops. It was launched as part of last year's Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record shops.
Elsewhere in the Top 10 Eminem's 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' is at nine, while former Number One Jake Bugg's 'Shangri La' lands at Seven. The two new entries in this week's chart come from Rod Stewart (Eight) and Il Divo (10).
The chart is made up of sales of albums from around 100 independent record retailers who participate in Record Store Day UK. The full Top 40 features every week in the new-look NME.
