Park Ave CDs’ Top 25 of the week [Jan 10 - Jan 16] (Hey, look: the Pauses are at #2!)




Well, the Pauses must be feeling pretty good. Not only did their first album debut at #2 on the charts at Park Ave, but it debuted on the same chart as a Dismemberment Plan record. I'd say that must feel pretty good for those guys. One odd note on this week's chart: Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan? I mean, I remember when I worked in music retail that album selling pretty consistently, but did STEVIE RAY die again?
