Billboard Hot 100
55th Anniversary By The Numbers
To celebrate the 55th Anniversary of Billboards Hot 100 Singles Chart - the magazine has compiled a list of the charts Top 100 Artists based on single appearances on the chart, weeks on the chart, peak position the singles achieved etc. 

Fleetwood Mac made the chart coming in at #84 which is pretty great considering they haven't had a single on the chart in a decade not since "Peacekeeper" made an appearance back in 2003.  And they haven't had a successful single on the chart since probably 1997 with Landslide.

AUSTRALIA - August 5, 2013
25 Years - The Chain moves back into the Top 10 in Australia on the Top 100 Albums Chart coming in at #9 from #15. Increases also felt on Greatest Hits and the 35th Anniversary Edition of Rumours. The Dance moves up two places on the DVD chart almost hitting it's peak position of #3 in Australia... Maybe next week it'll surpass it.  The 1987 Live document Tango In The Night continues to surprise me that it's back on the chart... it moves up to #26 this week from #30.

Fleetwood Mac explode at digital in the UK and Ireland.  Rumours takes a giant leap forward this week in the UK where it moves up to #29 from #84. In the UK and Ireland iTunes introduced a discount initiative "50 legendary classic rock albums" discounting albums by the likes of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours down to £3.99. Because of this, the album moves forward with sales in the UK of 3,567 units which is pretty impressive... and it'll likely continue to sell a few more this week and possibly move up the chart. The album is still discounted on itunes at £4.99.

The album also re-enters the charts in Scotland and Ireland because of the discounted price.
