    What would be the next one?

    We have ROCKET MAN compilation near PLATINUM in US (815k), Canada, Australia

    We have UNION wth a little longer walk for GOLD in US (at the moment is 340k) and UK (65/70k), and maybe in Norway and Brazil, but may become a catalog seller.

    Then we have a lot of digital sales in US.

    And video sales in Uk to be certified.

    I do not understand why the Number 1īs album was concerned as a new album last year in the Candadian charts. Since itīs re-entry there sometime in October 2010 it has been listet in the Canadian Top 100 almost constantly. Now itīs tracked with 14weeks. According to my chronicles the albumīs first week on that chart was in the spring of 2007 and back then it peaked on #8. In 2007 it had been 12 weeks in the Top 100 alone. So I donīt think that they use correct information for the current charts.

    About Elton hosting the SNL on 2nd April
    http://www.billboard.com/charts/billboa ... 0482.story

    contains videos from the show and this information
    (until the end of march)
    Fortunately, John got to show off his musical skills as well, in a pair of performances alongside Leon Russell.
    Their joint album, "The Union," has sold 329,000 copies since its October release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    very good. I guess last week Adele tied his record for the most consecutive weeks at no. 1 as a solo act in the British album charts (not including soundtracks). In return he earned this effort in the US. nice to read.

    Elton John last week became only the fourth artist in the past 20 years to reach #1 on Billboard's Top Catalog Albums chart with two different greatest hits albums. He scored last week with his 2007 compilation Rocket Man: Number Ones. He had previously headed the list with his 1974 blockbuster Greatest Hits.

    The Beatles topped the catalog chart with their 1973 album The Beatles/1967-1970 and their 2000 compilation 1. Eagles led the list with their 1976 compilation Eagles/Their Greatest Hits: 1971-1975 and their 2003 release The Very Best Of. Michael Jackson scored with his 2003 album Number Ones and his 2005 album The Essential Michael Jackson.

    Elton is unique in that both of his aforementioned greatest hits albums are single-disk compilations. In these three other cases, one is a single-disk and one is a double-disk.

    So how do you get to #1 on the catalog chart with two different greatest hits albums? As you can see, it helps to be among the biggest recording acts of all time.

    American Idol's Elton John theme paid off handsomely for the singer last week. Not only did his "Rocket Man: Number Ones" compilation jump more than 400% in weekly sales, but four of his songs performed on the show made Nielsen SoundScan's list of the week's 200 top-selling digital tracks, as well.

    Elton's top-selling track: "Tiny Dancer," which was performed on the show by Stefano Langone. Also making the list: "Bennie and the Jets," "Your Song" and "Rocket Man."

    Elton John, Tiny Dancer (14,000, +217%, 1.147 million)
    Elton John, Bennie and the Jets (14,000, +433%, 697,000)
    Elton John, Your Song (13,000, +407%, 718,000)
    Elton John, Rocket Man (10,000, +235%, 770,000)

    Congretulations Elton. It seems the busy week pays off. My forecast for Number Ones to get platinum next year will come true.

    from BILLBOARD (chart out tomorrow):

    Elton John's 2007 compilation Rocket Man-Number Ones re-enters the chart at #45 in the wake of American Idol's "Elton John Week." (Elton and Leon Russell also appeared on Saturday Night Live.) Rocket Man sold 13,000 copies this week. American Idol had 24.2 million viewers, which means about one in 2,000 Idol viewers bought the album. (That's the difference between watching TV for free and buying something.)

    Elton's album is #1 for the first time on Top Catalog Albums. It's the first album with the magic phrase Number Ones in (or as) its title to top the catalog chart since Michael Jackson's Number Ones led the list for 28 weeks in 2009-2010. George Strait's 50 Number One Hits topped the catalog chart in May 2009. The Beatles' 1 and Elvis' Elv!s: 30 #1 Hits also topped the catalog chart.

    Four Elton songs re-enter Hot Digital Songs this week. Details in Chart Watch: Songs.

    Is that 302,654 US sales of Union? In which case it has done a good deal better than The Captain and the Kid. Have updated Page One.

    A few titles could do with an riaa update - particularly the 1970 Elton John album last certified in 1971!!

    Not included is The Lion King Soundtrack which shipped 10 million and has a soundscan figure of 7,676,000

    Also, very interesting soundscan figure for that single Candle in the Wind 1997

    8,837,000}

    A relatively easy one to update. Amazed they bothered to certify Greatest Hits 1970-2002 after so long. However it probably means they may never bother to update the rest of the catalogue.

    The Rocket Man compilation keeps ticking over nicely.

    Any soundscan updates very welcome, particularly for Union.
