    Now its # 78.

    Some other albums by David Bowie or Fleetwood Mac are the same price and in the Top 100 too.

                  • 42 years after his chart debut, and 21 years after his last chart topper, Elton John turns back the years to secure his seventh number one with Good Morning To The Night. Comprising eight tracks, each of which incorporates samples from several mostly lesser known John recordings from 1970-1976, it is a collaboration with Australian electronic duo Pnau, who have crafted a critically acclaimed, accessible dance album for their labours, which spanned four years.

                    Selling 14,342 copies last week, the result is 65 year old John's 45th chart album, and the 29th to make the Top 10. He previously topped the chart with Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player (1973), Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1973), Caribou (1974), Greatest Hits (1974), Sleeping With The Past (1990) and The Very Best Of (1990).

                    Sad, a track from the album, enters the singles chart at number 48 (5,650 sales), providing John's 84th hit single.

                    Good Morning To The Night sold fewer copies in debuting at number one than any album this century, replacing Newton Faulkner's Write It On Your Skin, which set the previous low (16,647) just a week ago. The only album to hold down the number one position on the artist album chart in the 21st century with fewer sales that Good Morning To The Night recorded last week is Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events, which bounced 3-1 on sales of just 13,430 copies eight weeks ago.

                    • THE UNION in Uk in the 1st week has sold nearly the same copies, but having been released in a busy week of October 2010, just enters at n.12. Then, in these 2 years, album sales were lowered in uk...

                                                I have a soundscan total for GYBR of approx 1.559.000 for 1990/2005 period; so i'm not so sure which version the *total refers. I think there are 3 version of the album from 1990: original double cd, single cd released in 1996, double deluxe cd released in 2004. So the *total refers just to the standard "single" cd released in 1996 + download version from 2007? It miss approx 6 years of soundscan sales (90/96) and does not include deluxe version?

                                                • Im not sure, which versions are included in these sales. But Im surprised that most of the the last week sales of Number Ones are physical. This week it has changed completely. From Tuesday-Thursday (3days) it was # 1 selling album on AMAZON.COM. Now still # 6. We definitely will see another week in the Top 200.

                                                  • For GYBR in US i think we have:
                                                    double cd first version (approx 500/600k from 1990 to 96)
                                                    single cd actual version (1450k from 1996 to now, includes downloads)
                                                    deluxe version (between 50 and 100k from 2004)
                                                    A total of more than 2 million copies in the soundscan era
