Rocker Jack White has returned to the top of the U.S. album charts with the biggest vinyl sales week since 1991.

Lazaretto bows atop the Billboard 200 with 138,000 first-week sales and 40,000 of those were old school records - 6,000 more than Pearl Jam's Vitalogy back in 1994.

The vinyl release of the album features unique qualities - it plays at three different speeds, has a hidden track under the centre label and features an angel hologram effect.

Last week's Billboard 200 chart-topper, Miranda Lambert's Platinum, slips to a distant number two, while the Frozen soundtrack slides a spot to three, and Brantley Gilbert's Just As I Am and the soundtrack to The Fault in Our Stars round out the new top five.
