Top Sellers at Area Record Stores: Week of August 31-September 7



Every Monday, A to Z publishes the best-selling releases from area independent record stores from the preceding week. (Vintage Vinyl will return next week -- they had catastrophic email problems last week.) An asterisk after an album name indicates that the act is coming to town. And so without further ado:
