Record Store Day: The biggest selling albums in indie shops of the last year

Record Store Day: The biggest selling albums in indie shops of the last year

In an era of record stores closing down, Steamboat was created from the closure of HMV in Limerick in 2013.

To celebrate the day, some artists will just pop into a store or will have a specialty album shipped out. Saturday, all $1 records are 25 cents and $5 records are $2.50.
