              Three charts:

              Monthly (shipments)
              Nightfortly (retail sales)
              Weekly (shipments)

              Strange indeed.

                Weekly is shipment chart
                Bi-weekly is over the counter sales chart, probably too sensible, that's why they only posted bi-weekly.

                      AC/DC - Back In Black UK shipments:

                      1997 --- 2,149 From July 97
                      1998 --- 5,771
                      1999 --- 9,494
                      2000 --- 10,562
                      2001 --- 22,585
                      2002 --- 22,513
                      2003 --- 16,179 Until end of June 03
                      2004 --- ???? Year missing
                      2005 --- 21,554 From July 05
                      2006 --- 25,700
                      2007 --- 23,383
                      2008 --- 16,463 Until end of September 08
                      Total --- 176,353

                      With over two peak years missing (June03-July05) it's safe to say it shipped over 200k since July 1997. The Remastered CD was released in late February 2003. So sales in 03 and 05 are high although half the years are missing. 2004 sales were likely high too.

                      Last few months hectic AC/DC sales not included!

                      The album went Gold as a UK#1 shortly after release in 1980, never certified Platinum

                        Black Ice is AC/DC's ninth album to top the 1 million mark in the Nielsen/SoundScan era, which began in 1991.

                        AC/DC's biggest album is its 1980 blockbuster Back In Black, which has sold 6,308,000 copies since Nielsen/SoundScan starting tabulating sales in May 1991. The group's 1992 album, Live, has sold 5,332,000 copies (combining sales of single-disk and double-disk editions of the album.) The band's 1990 album, The Razors Edge, has sold 2,618,000 copies. Continuing, in descending order are 1979's Highway To Hell (1,914,000), 1986's Who Made Who (1,813,000), 1981's Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (1,741,000), 1981's High Voltage (1,552,000) and 1995's Ballbreaker (1,161,000). Note: AC/DC has changed labels, which prompts Nielsen/SoundScan to start new counts, but I combined counts on different labels for this special tally. Still, there's no way to account for the millions of albums that several of these titles sold before May 1991.
                        These numbers compared to the ones we got when AC/DC first invaded catalog in September tell us that album sales the past 8 weeks are approx:

                        Back in Black: 97k
                        Live + Live 2cd: 54k
                        High Voltage: 43k
                        Highway to Hell: 38k
                        Dirty Deeds: 36k
                        Razors Edge: 22k
                        Who Made Who: 16k


                        Past 8 weeks catalog chart runs (48 entries!):

                        It's a bit surprising to me that High Voltage is the 2nd biggest catalog seller these days (behind BIB). Usually it has trailed Live, HTH and DDDDC too.
                        At 7$ HV is lower priced than BIB and HTH at Wal-Mart, but I think it's always been like that :-?

                        For some reason Let There Be Rock is higher priced, and it usually is, but it's not a good catalog seller, so why is that?? It is their best album, but still

                        Wal-Mart AC/DC catalog prices:

                        Live 2cd 14.88

                              • A bit of history, the best selling albums act ever according to my estimates:

                                Rank / Artist / Sales / Last update
                                15 Barbra Streisand 139,800,000 févr-08
                                16 Whitney Houston 134,200,000 déc-07
                                17 Garth Brooks 131,900,000 févr-08
                                18 Bruce Springsteen 130,900,000 févr-08
                                19 Eric Clapton 129,000,000 févr-08
                                20 AC/DC 128,700,000 nov-07
                                21 Billy Joel 124,500,000 déc-07

                                AC/DC were at #20 in the list barely one year ago. Adding the 10 million albums sold during that last year, they should be nearing the 140m mark by now, topping Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Garth Brooks and Whitney Houston, maybe even Barbra Streisand soon to sit in the top 15 albums acts ever. Such a gain in one year only!

                                btw, Sinatra isn't estimated yet, and may be ahead of AC/DC.

                                    • Last week's No. 1, AC/DC's "Black Ice," drops to No. 2 with 160,000 (down 41%). With 1.2 million sold in just three weeks, the album has now surpassed the total sales of its last two studio sets: 2000's "Stiff Upper Lip" (901,000) and 1995's "Ballbreaker" (1.1 million).

                                        AC/DC's 'Ice' remains at No. 1
                                        By JOHN WILLIAMS

                                        AC/DC's latest effort continues to sizzle on the Canadian album charts.

                                        "Black Ice" was locked in at No. 1 for a third straight week, selling 27,000 copies, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

                                        It has now racked up a grand total of 186,000 in sales since its release.

                                            This is true, according to Soundscan anyway, but the previous albums probably sold well through Music Clubs too. Ballbreaker is certified 2xP.

                                            I'm sure Black Ice will be 2xp too, well we already know Wal-Mart has oredered 2.5m...

                                              AC/DC were at #20 in the list barely one year ago. Adding the 10 million albums sold during that last year, they should be nearing the 140m mark by now, topping Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Garth Brooks and Whitney Houston, maybe even Barbra Streisand soon to sit in the top 15 albums acts ever. Such a gain in one year only!

                                              btw, Sinatra isn't estimated yet, and may be ahead of AC/DC.
                                              An AC/DC update would be great for your work, what do you think?. We have a bunch of updated numbers.
                                              Well maybe an update would be even more interesting when Black Ice is out of the top 40 and the catalog ales have gone back to normal.

                                                • Last week's No. 1, AC/DC's "Black Ice," drops to No. 2 with 160,000 (down 41%). With 1.2 million sold in just three weeks, the album has now surpassed the total sales of its last two studio sets: 2000's "Stiff Upper Lip" (901,000) and 1995's "Ballbreaker" (1.1 million).

                                                Clearly they forgot to include the 2007 remaster which had sold 36,000 by September

                                                • And Paul Grein's Chart Watch just proved my above note:

                                                  With AC/DC's Black Ice dropping to #2, rock albums hold down both of the top two slots this week. This is the first time in more than a year that two rock albums have ruled the chart. It last happened in October 2007 when Bruce Springsteen's Magic and Kid Rock's Rock N Roll Jesus held the top two spots for two weeks running.

                                                  Black Ice has sold 1,215,000 copies in just three weeks. That's more than the band's last two studio albums have sold in their entire runs (hat tip: Keith Caulfield.) Ballbreaker has sold 1,162,000 copies since its release in 1995. Stiff Upper Lip has sold 949,000 since its release in 2000. In addition, AC/DC this week moves up to #23 on Nielsen/SoundScan's running list of the top-selling album artists since 1991. The headbangers trade places with *NSYNC, now in 24th place.

                                                  2. AC/DC, Black Ice, 160,000. The album dips from #1 to #2 in its third week. Black Ice is already #8 on the year-to-date chart. Metallica's Death Magnetic is #6. If both albums stay on track, this will be the first year since 1992 that two mainstream hard rock albums have finished in the year-end top 10. Metallica and Def Leppard scored that year. AC/DC are digital holdouts, so no songs from the album are listed on Hot Digital Songs.
                                                  AC/DC above *NSYNC...about bloody time I say

                                                    Now there's a 2,000 unit discrepancy between Chart Alert and Chart Watch figures, but I've seen a small 2001 edition selling 2,000 before, so the figures add up.
