    • Fantastic result for Voyage in the IFPI lists, sadly they didn't publish any sales figures.

        • The methodology for the IFPI Top Albums - All Formats has a "weighted" elenent. This seems to be value based as well as taking into account physical sales, digital sales and streaming.

          For example ABBA are at #8 in this chart one ahead of Morgan Wallen. But he sold 3m plus just in the US. Voyage 2m max globally. Morgan's sales were almost all streaming ewuivalent - ABBA's almost all physical.

          So I suspect some kind of value component.
          The Media Traffic list does not have a "value" component.


          The Pure Sales chart is straightforward. Good old fashioned units and no fancy formulas. Here ABBA are #2. Many of us, older, ABBA fans prefer this method

                You say pity there's no sales figures in those IFPI lists. I am sure there will be soon. Last year they published sales for Pure Sales for albums and song sales - though not the All Format one which is value based.


                They publish these on their website in both an article and downloadable report. Here is last year's as an example.

                • Germany midweek update:

                  Voyage 21 (17) 17

                  15 new entries above. Voyage likely will remain within the Top 20 on Friday.

                    The Jewel case is #153 on bestsellers cd/vinyl and only one left in stock right now. Unlike pre-orders are counted for the bestseller list, they can't count what's not available and can't be ordered right now. If Amazon orders more shipment, the album will climb again. My guessing.

                          • Nice to see the breakdown of those sales for ABBA and indeed all the top albums of last year.

                            Voyage
                            366,000 physical. Vinyl on 40,000. My estimate for cassette is 6,000. That leaves 320,000 for CDs.

                            Older artists can do well in streaming - for the Greatest Hits collections.


                            I Still Have Faith in You #7 in Singles Vinyl Chart of Year - 2,562 sales.

                              It's based on what the labels send to stores, they count shipments, not what the public buys.
                              An album can sell 500k to customers, but the label could send 600k, and thats what they count.

                              Not the actual customer sales, sometimes they can be really over shipped. can remember 1 been over shipped by a million in just 1 country.

                                I've been very busy since mid-January and haven't been able to contribute like I used to, unfortunatly.

                                  Yeah, I gathered the Pure Sales chart was actual shipments not sales to customers as the IFPI represent labels

                                                • I was looking at some old Catalog charts.

                                                  The 1st one I have. 2/2003:

                                                  48 ABBA|GOLD-GREATEST HITS 4187 4064 3,134,847 - 6xP

                                                  7/2013:

                                                  ABBA GOLD-GREATEST HITS 5,439,329 - 6xP

                                                  2/2022:

                                                  Pure album sales: 6,280,000 - 6xP

                                                  That's 3.1 million copies since 2003. Definitely eligible for 9xP with the RIAA.

                                                  Sales Plus Streaming is at 7.9 million. In about 8 weeks, it'll cross the 8 million mark.

                                                  • That 8 million SPS excludes the 3 million sales Soundscan did not pick up between 1993 and 2002.

                                                    In 2002 when it got 6x platinum from RIAA its soundscan sales were about 3 million.

                                                    It should be 11x million soon
