Chart Updates: Fleetwood Mac Australia & UK + Ken Caillat Book Signing Events

AUSTRALIA - June 4, 2012
Fleetwood Mac's 2CD "The Very Best Of Fleetwood Mac" surges back into the top half of the Top 100 Albums Chart re-entering the chart at #49 this week helped along no doubt by the discounted album price of $9.99 at JB Hi-Fi. The album needs to spend just one more week within the top 100, which it likely will, to mark it's 300th non-consecutive week in the Top 100. The album also re-enters the top 10 on the Top 50 Catalogue Chart moving from #14 last week to #6 this week.  Rumours also re-enters the Top 50 Catalogue Chart this week at #34 after being absent for awhile.

Fleetwood Mac's 1975 song "Landslide" was covered by Karise Eden on Australia's "The Voice" TV show. The song is included on "The Voice: The Final 24" album.  That album entered the Australian Top 100 Albums Chart at #26. Karise's version of Landslide was the highest charting song from the album entering the Top 100 Singles Chart at #14 and also #14 on the Top 40 Digital Tracks Chart. Fleetwood Mac's original version of Landslide from the white "Fleetwood Mac" album earlier today was the No. 1 Rock Song on iTunes Australia.

UK - June 9, 2012
Rumours in the UK hangs on for one more week on the Top 100 Albums Chart moving from #81 last week to #99 this week.  The album remains within the top 10 on the Top 40 Catalogue Chart.
