    I don't know about that.
    May be that Rocket man compilations has been certified as a dvd and not a cd-album?

    Yes, but this doesn't answer to my question.
    I think this dvd is the one that comes out with the 1st press of Rccket Man cd. This will explain this 200.000 copies sold.


    ALSO;
    there's another 200.000copies dvd that has to be certified in US, and it's DOUBLE.
    It's "ELTON at 60"

    Some LPs from Elton are near to the next level but some tenthousend copies are missing and so there´s no way for certification. Since record sales have been more than halved these records have no chance for soon certification. By the way these 80s records sell quite low. Reg Strikes Back (near Plat) or Sleeping With The Past (near 2xPlat) or The Very Best Of (1990 US import) near Gold are some examples.
    Considering the estimated number of unreported sales (not counted sales between cert levels or insufficient sales) and the inadequate certified records the actual album sales of Elton are 85-90 million in US.

    For certifications you have to pay.
    I think it's a little signal that things are getting better with elton and majors, at least in US.
    It's a first result of THE UNION success probably.

    It was overdued.

    Now there are still some important certifications missing... Cert. for "Elton John" (Plat), "Honky Château" (MultPlat) for instance. And "Empty Sky", "11-17-70" oder "The Union" are predestinated for Gold. By this time next year "Rocket Man" (CD) will be ready for Plat.

    Elton John's 'Gnomeo and Juliet' hits no. 1 just in time for Oscar
    Sunday, February 27 2011

    Just in time for his annual Oscar party, Elton John's "Gnomeo and Juliet" hit no. 1 at the box office.

    A rare achievement in its third week of wide release, "Gnomeo & Juliet" pulled in another $14.2 million for an estimated new cume of $75.1 million. The 3D animated tale will certainly pass the $100 million mark, but questions abound how much more the surprise hit could have made if the picture had been released under the Disney label instead of Touchstone Pictures. In any event, it's a great achievement for Elton and his producing team who worked hard with former Disney studio head Dick Cook to get the film made.

    ALBUMS
    After a X-Factor special dedicated Elton programme,
    Rocket Man the definitive HITS back in the top100 at n.53 in another busy-with-new-entries week.

    SINGLES
    A YOUR SONG cover from ELLIE GOULDING at n.3 (85.000 copies aprox)
    Making a giant leap up the chart this week is Ellie Goulding’s ‘Your song’. After creeping in at 39 last week, this week it’s up 36 places to a new peak of number 3. By doing this, it becomes the biggest climb within the top 40 in a single week since Taio Cruz and Tinchy Stryder’s ‘Take me back’ made the exact same jump in January 2009

    Back also in the charts,
    YOUR SONG original version at n.61
    SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY../CANDLE IN THE WIND 1997
    at n.77
    This is the all-time best selling single in uk and in the world
    YOUR SONG (Moulin Rouge Version) - Ewan mcGregor n.197
