This weeks Album Charts Update: Fleetwood Mac U.S., UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada

AUSTRALIA - August 19, 2013

Fleetwood Mac have four albums in the Top 40 this week in Australia, two of them within the Top 10. The recently certified gold "25 Years - The Chain" [box set] reaches a new high on the Top 100 Albums Chart moving up to No.4 this week.  "Greatest Hits" also makes a big move on the chart - up to No.8 from No.50 last week.  The last time Fleetwood Mac had two albums in the Top 10 was back in 1977 with "Rumours" and "Fleetwood Mac".  "The Very Best Of" re-enters the Top 100 coming in at No.40 marking it's 318th week on the chart continuing it's streak of the longest charting album ever in Australia.

On the Top 50 Catalogue Albums Chart you'll find the above four albums all within the Top 10 with "25 Years - The Chain" moving up to the No.1 position from No.2 last week. On the Top 50 Digital Albums Chart two albums re-enter the Top 50 "Rumours" and "The Very Best Of".  Last Sunday's broadcast of "Sunday Night" featuring interviews with the members of Fleetwood Mac certainly helped pushed all these albums up on the chart!

U.S.A. - August 24, 2013
After last week's splash on the Top 200 Albums Chart in the U.S. Fleetwood Mac's 1988 "Greatest Hits" album retreats all the way off the chart this week.  The album which sold 10,874 units in the U.S. and landed at No.29 on last weeks chart only sold 1,600 units this week, not enough to qualify for placement within the Top 200.  Total U.S. sales for the album, since November, 1991 when Soundscan began tracking over the counter sales and subsequently digital sales = 4,690,356.

On the Top 200 Catalogue Albums Chart Rumours is sitting at No.88 with 1,762 in sales for the week for a U.S. total = 3,215,617. Greatest Hits moves all the way down to No.109 from No.4 last week. "Fleetwood Mac" moves up to No.135 from No.155 last week with 1,436 albums sold vs 1,527 last week. Total U.S. sales since November, 1991 = 943,232.  The Very Best Of moves up to No.161 from No.163 with 1,334 albums sold vs 1,423 the previous week.  Total U.S. sales since its release in November, 2002 = 1,591,543.

CANADA - August 11, 2013
Rumours holds at No.40 on the Top 200 Catalogue Albums Chart in Canada this week with 314 albums sold vs 377 the previous week. Total Canadian sales since Soundscan began tracking sales in 1995 = 383,666. Greatest Hits drops from No.1 to No.58 with 257 units sold vs 2,307 in the previous sales period. Total sales in Canada since 1995 = 200,033.  The Dance is down to No.140 from No.126 last week with 158 units sold vs 189 in the previous sales period. Total sales since 1997 = 105,220.  These numbers may seem small but when you consider that Canada's population is about a 10th of the U.S., these numbers are quite good!
