    The New OCC Site has both Totals wrong for that Queen Album.

    1)..... They give it 449 Top 75 Weeks. It should be 443 Top 75 Weeks.

    2)..... They give it 663 Top 100 Weeks. It is over 6 Months too low. It is actually on 688 Top 100 Weeks.

    (They also have the Top 100 Weeks wrong for 'ABBA Gold'. They say 699 Weeks. It is actually 701 Weeks).

    Hi Zeus, great work as always, do you have a total for Queen for weeks inside the Top100 Album chart. Working on a recent OCC total I have Queen at 1471 as of this week, do your figures work out the same?

                        Both Albums really starting to slip now, looks like the 1500 figure maybe out of reach this year, we will have to wait and see!

                          I wonder why it suddenly switched to the WWRY edition in week 3, any ideas? Surely these editions need to be combined now to allow Greatest Hits to achieve its Diamond certificate!

                                      Considering that Rok or Bust from AC/DC is #138 with 5,700 copies sold this week, GH from Queen has probably sold from 6,500 to 7,000 units or maybe a bit more.

                                        2 questions for our chart experts out there

                                        1. Can anyone tell me why GH is No100 on the Billboard Chart yet doesn't feature in the Top50 Catalogue Chart? Led Zeppelin are No1 on the Catalogue Chart and No62 on the Top200, GNR are No35 on the Catalogue Chart and No112 on the Top200, any ideas?

                                        2. Similarly in the UK, Queen regularly place 3 or 4 songs on the Rock Singles Chart yet none of their Albums feature on the Rock Album Chart, how can this be?

                                          As to the Billboard Top-200 chart, not only albums sales are counted, but also streamings and digital tracks. While in the Catalogue chart, I think only albums sales are counted and not streamings and digital tracks.
                                          As to UK, it's strange the fact that their albums are never counted in the Rock Albums Chart, unlikely their singles, which do always appear in the Rock Singles Chart... :-?

                                                07. Rod Stewart (9,353,186)
                                                08. Michael Jackson (9,243,018)
                                                09. The Beatles (8,834,981)
                                                10. Oasis (7,894,460)

                                                Madonna is no. 12 on 7,653,480 - so is Queen at no. 11?
                                                I think we need to contact Alan Jones at music week for the full list! Seriously!

                                                            My estimations:
                                                            In the first week of the year, Slipknot's album "The Gray Chapter" was #111 and sold 6,000 copies. So I think Greates Hits is at 6,500.
                                                            In the second week, I Prevail's ep "Heart vs. Mind" was #88 with 5,850 copies. Queen's Greatest Hits was #86. It probably sold more than 5,900 units.
                                                            In the third week (that is to say the first week when Greatest Hits We Will Rok You appeared in chart), Foo Fighters' new album was #88 winth 5,575 copies. Queen were #77, therefore my estimations are 5,900.
                                                            In the fourth week, Foo Fighters' new album was #118 with 4,500. Queen were #108, so my estimation is 4,800.
                                                            In the fifth week, Foo Fighters were #146 with 3,950 copies, while Queen were #116. My estimation is 4,500/4,800 units.
                                                            In the sixth week, Adele's album 21 was #99 with almost 7,000 copies. Queen were #94 so I think with 7,200 units.
                                                            In the seventh week, Bette Midler with "It's The Girl" was #107 with 7,000 copies. Queen were #92, so I believe 7,500/8,000 copies.
                                                            In the eighth week, unfortunately I don't sales data available. Greatest Hits was #106. I think it probably sold 6,000/7,000 copies.
                                                            In the ninth week, Rob Zombie's live album was #118 with 6,000 copies. Queen were #120, so they probably sold 5,900 units.
                                                            In the tenth week, AC/DC with their new album were #110 selling 5,700 units. Queen were #112, so I believe 5,600 units.
                                                            In the eleventh week, AC/DC with their new album were #138 selling 5,700 copies. So, Queen being #100, they probably sold 6,500/6,800.
                                                            In the twelfth week, AC/DC new album sold 3,925 units and was #165. Queen were #108 and probably sold 5,500/6,000 units.
                                                            In the thirteenth week, AC/DC were outside the top-200, but sold 3,300 copies. Queen were #113 and probably sold 5,000/5,500 copies.


                                                            Recapitulating:

                                                            Greatest Hits (1992 version):

                                                            first week: 6,500
                                                            second week: 5,900

                                                            As to the other weeks, it might have sold more than 1,000 copies each, but we can't be sure about it.

                                                            Greatest Hits (We Will Rock You edition):

                                                            third week: 5,900
                                                            fourth week: 4,800
                                                            fifth week: 4,500/4,800
                                                            sixth week: 7,200
                                                            seventh week: 7,500
                                                            eighth week: 6,000/7,000
                                                            ninth week: 5,900
                                                            tenth week: 5,600
                                                            eleventh week: 6,500/6,800
                                                            twelfth week: 5,500/6,000
                                                            thirteenth week: 5,000/5,500

                                                            These are my estimations. I have tried to estimate Greatest Hits (We Will Rock You edition) in the USA. The total varies from 64,000 to 67,000. But the first two weeks of 2015 are missing, where this album didn't appear in charts. Probably, combining the two albums, we obtain a total of more than 90,000 copies.
