FLEETWOOD MAC ON THE CHARTS: "RUMOURS" IS SPRINGING UP ALL OVER!

IRELAND: Top 100 Albums Chart - Week ending 17th March, 2011
  • On Ireland's Top 100 Albums Chart Fleetwood Mac's 1988 "Greatest Hits" compilation moves up to # 30 from # 59 last week notching up its 76th non-consecutive week on the Top 100.           
    UK: Top 100 Singles Chart - Week of 26th March, 2011
    • Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" enters the Top 100 singles chart at # 81 spurred on completely by the Facebook campaign in the UK set up to get the Formula 1 official theme song to #1 for the opening week of the race.  Although the group of just under 6,000 members spent the week downloading from various digital retailers in the UK - they were just too small a group to make it happen.  But to their credit, there was press coverage in the UK hi-lighting their goal, radio stations in the UK mentioned their cause, Formula 1 drivers on Twitter were even jumping on the bandwagon!... I watched all week as the song bounced around the top itunes download charts which I found really quite impressive and it just proves the power of social media and what you can accomplish if you mobilize groups of people and focus on your goal... So I say well done!
      NETHERLANDS: Top 50 Back Catalogue Chart - Week Ending 19th March, 2011
      • "Rumours" moves down the chart to # 35 from # 16 last week on the Top 50 back catalogue chart.         
        AUSTRALIA: Top 50 Catalogue Albums Chart - Week of 21st, March, 2011
        • Fleetwood Mac remains at the # 1 position on Australia's Top 50 Catalogue Chart with "The Very Best Of".  Total weeks on this chart - 52.  
        • Fleetwood Mac's 12x Platinum "Rumours" moves up two positions to # 24 in it's 3rd week back on the Top 50 Catalogue Chart.  Total weeks spent on this chart non-consecutively is 18.
        • "Landslide" by Glee enters the Top 40 Digital Track Chart at # 38.
        • Glee: The Music Volume 5 enters the Top 50 Album Chart, The Top 50 Digital Album Chart and the Top 50 Physical Album Chart at # 1. (contains their version of "Landslide").          
          Top 40 DVD Chart - Australia - Week of 14th, March, 2011
          • On the Top 40 Music DVD Chart, Fleetwood Mac's 8x Platinum "The Dance" drops down to # 35 from # 29 last week. Total non-consecutive weeks for "The Dance" on this chart 228.
          FLEETWOOD MAC'S 1977 ALBUM "RUMOURS" is springing up all over the place on itunes no doubt as a result of the announcement this past week that GLEE will be tackling the album for a full episode next season.  Not to mention the fact that Glee took on Stevie's Landslide which appears on the white "Fleetwood Mac" album released prio to "Rumours".  I think it's great... It re-introduces Fleetwood Mac's mega selling "Rumours" to a whole new generation that may not be aware...
