"For What It's Worth" not lookin' too good on the charts!

Stevie's latest single "For What It's Worth" isn't looking too good at the moment on the AC Charts... In it's 3rd week on the chart (Billboard Magazine issue October 15th) the single has dropped to # 29 after debuting at # 25 and dropping to # 26 the second week.  This was to be expected as there have been virtually no radio stations in the US in the month of September picking up the track for play... Too bad, it's a great track!

I'd suggest getting another single out there to radio, but at this late stage in the fall and with AC radio's slow building pattern, by the time anything begins to gain some traction it'll be Christmas and the onslot of holiday tunes on radio will be relentless... Remember what happened in the fall of 2003 when Thrown Down and Steal Your Heart Away were released from Say You Will?... Not a lot!  Both radio singles were lost in the holiday shuffle...

Fleetwood Mac take a GIANT leap up the Billboard Top 200 + Lindsey Buckingham Tour Stats

Billboard Magazine 
Week ending September 25th, issue date October 8th:

The big news this week isn't the fact that both Lindsey and Stevie drop off the Top 200 Albums Chart this week with Seeds We Sow and In Your Dreams, but that Fleetwood Mac's 1977 Rumours album continues to sell so well 34 years after it's initial release.  Again this week the album re-enters multiple Billboard charts, most notibly the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart where it re-enters at # 74 on a 328% sales increase or 6,293 total units sold vs 1,470 units sold the week prior.  The massive increase is likely due to Amazon's deeply discounted mp3 album download that saw the title being sold for as little as $3.99 last week.  Even today the album can be bought for $5.99 as an mp3 download on Amazon.  To date Rumours has sold 2,891,943 albums in the US since November, 1991 when Soundscan began tracking over the counter sales.

No such luck for Lindsey's Seeds We Sow on the Top 200, even though Amazon had the album for most of last week discounted down to as little as $4.99 the album drops off the Top 200 this week.  Seeds We Sow in it's 3rd week of release remains on the Top 200 Current Albums Chart falling from # 132 last week to # 177 this week.  On the Top Independent Albums Chart, the album remains in the Top 40 at # 38 down from # 32 last week.

Back to Rumours:  On the Top Digital Albums Chart, Rumours re-enters at # 24 this week while on the Top Catalogue Albums Chart the album re-enters at the # 4 place right behind The Beatles at # 1, Adele and Amy Winehouse.

Stevie's In Your Dreams drops out of the Top 200 Albums chart this week along with the Top 200 Current Albums Chart and the Top 50 Rock Albums Chart.  Her new single "For What It's Worth" remains on the Top 30 AC Charts holding steady at # 26 for a second week.

Complete charts below.  Previous week in parenthesis.


Billboard Top 200 Current Albums Chart
# 177 (132) Lindsey Buckingham - Seeds We Sow

Billboard Top Independent Albums Chart
# 38 (32) Lindsey Buckingham - Seeds We Sow

Billboard Top Digital Albums
# 24 (-) Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (Re-entry)

Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart
# 74 (-) Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (Re-entry)

Billboard Top Catalogue Albums Chart
# 4 (-) Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (Re-entry)

Billboard Top 30 AC Charts
# 26 (26) Stevie Nicks - For What It's Worth

On the tour front, Seeds We Sow Tour attendance to the first 3 shows reported by promoters to Boxscore have been published.  Attendance average based on these first 3 is at 73% which is higher so far then his last two tours ended up after a majority of the dates had been published... It's early yet so provided more stats are published on more dates, this will change.

Video: Stevie Nicks Performing on Good Morning America

Stevie took to the stage today in Central Park, New York City... The last half hour of GMA was pretty much owned by Stevie save for a bar-b-q segment... We saw a clip of her performing Stand Back first.. Then a short clip of her rocking the tambourine to Ghosts Are Gone and then the full live versions of Landslide and For What it's Worth.  Surprise of surprises.. Mike Campbell of The Heartbreakers who wrote For What It's Worth was there to perform the song with her.  Stevie played out the show with Rhiannon.  Steive and her band looked awesome and sounded amazing for a tv show which is a rarity as the sound mix can often sound pretty bad.. Great job guys!

More Videos after the jump!

Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks - 2 singles Impacting Radio

Both Stevie and Lindsey have new singles out promoting their respective albums Stevie with "For What It's Worth" and Lindsey with "In Our Own Time".  Lindsey's tune is so far impacting at Triple A stations and was picked up by 5 stations today.. That's great!  Stevie's track has been building slowly since it's release in July primarily at AC stations with a  few Triple A stations picking up the track.  Stevie's track should officially enter Billboards Top 30 AC chart within the next week or two and with the video for the song expected in the next few weeks it will only help with awareness. Lindsey's song was just released so it still needs to build up some radio spins before it hits any charts.  No word on whether a video will be serviced or not.  Good news all around!

"For What It's Worth" Radio Play Update >>

Stevie's newest single 'For What it's Worth' continues to gain at mostly AC radio stations since being serviced to both AC and Triple A outlets in the latter part of July... Currently on the 7 day reports and station playlist chart the song is # 32 moving up from # 39 last week with an increase in radio play on monitored stations that pretty much doubles week over week.  The song was also part of the "AC Most Added List" for the week.  There are a few Triple A stations playing the track, but not enough yet for the song to appear on the monitored stations chart.
