Fleetwood Mac's 1988 Greatest Hits album re-enters Billboards Top 200 Albums Chart this week at #65 with US sales for the week of 6,544 units, up from 2,222 last week (195% increase).

If Stevie was really committed to getting "In Your Dreams" out there to the public at large, she would have also used stunt pricing for the digital download version to coincide with the start of her 2012 solo tour. Or she could sell physical CDs at her shows for, say, $10. Signed ones for $15. People, for good reason, are skittish about spending money on new music from "legacy" artists; 99% of their albums are garbage. But Stevie's IYD is such a gem that she should do whatever it takes to coerce people into buying it. The shows so far have been great, and I think people have genuinely enjoyed the new songs.

I love Stevie Nicks more than anyone out there but a studio album every 10 years is brutal for a fan. I will see her in concert 4x this summer so I feel a little better

I agree about the pricing of 'In Your Dreams'. Unfortunately, I think it's more of a Warner/Repirse decision and not something Stevie herself has a lot of say in. I would love to see it on Amazon.com for $2.99 or even one of their 100 albums for $5 promotion that they do every month.
