Vinyl sales for labels

Post by subtropical » Tue Aug 01, 2006 9:50 am

Anyone know any REAL numbers for how many units labels these days are pressing and selling- realistically???

Hoping for specifics from across the board- big labels and small as well...

ok go!

hehe, do you think you'll get the exact numbers from the labels?

My guess is that small labels sell between 500-1000 per release. This would often be new labels, and labels not buying big stars to release for them.

Then you have the small-medium labels that sell between 1000-2500 per release. This would often be quality labels that have been in business for a while or new labels with the current 'stars'.

Then the medium-big labels that sell between 2500-6000 releases which are well established and well-known labels.

And finally the big labels doing more than 6000 per release (think Poker Flat, M-Nus and that sort of labels).


something like that....
