        Thank you, glad to see you back here. I would have thought that the Platinium collection was at a higher number outside USA and Canada. That is, looking at some sales from Europe the album seems to be close to the 4 million mark. But welll, it´s good to have official information from EMI since it´s very difficult to find claim for Queen albums.

                          That's the first time I saw updated certifications in finland !! still disapointing 55k imo. Maybe it doesn't cover all sales as the realease date is indicated as 1984

                          • Yes John, this update is very strange, but great. And yes, I would have liked a higher number for Greatest hits 1.

                                        • I've been going through the queen thread ...I thought I had posted this a long time ago but ... apparently i had not.

                                          from QOL
                                          **Fri 20 Sep 02**
                                          GREATEST VIDEO HITS 1 - OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
                                          Queen’s Greatest Video Hits on DVD For the First Time Greatest Video Hits 1 DVD For release 14 October 2002.

                                          Containing no less than 22 of the band’s all-time greatest hits, Queen – Greatest Video Hits 1 DVD is the first of a series of DVD releases from Queen which will revisit the band’s legendary video catalogue and make it available in the most advanced audio and visual formats currently in existence.

                                          Compiled directly from the band’s phenomenally successful Greatest Hits 1 album, which has to date sold in excess of 25 million copies worldwide, the DVD arrives after more than twelve months of extensive archive research and audio and visual enhancement.

                                          Under the close supervision of Brian May and Roger Taylor, Queen engineer Justin Shirley Smith has re-mixed these classic Queen tracks from the original masters in both stunning DTS 5.1 surround sound and stereo.

                                          David Mallet, whose association with Queen as video director spans over 20 years, has meticulously overseen the restoration of the videos. The majority, some, astoundingly, almost 30 years old, have been re-graded and colourised giving them a new lease of life.

                                          It is the first time a DVD project of this scale has been undertaken. And never has Bohemian Rhapsody sounded like this!

                                          In addition to the enhancement of the original audio and visual tracks, Greatest Video Hits 1 DVD, packaged as a double disc set, also offers a host of bonus material: A brand new audio commentary from Brian and Roger, exclusively recorded for this DVD. 6 extra tracks – including an unique version of Good Old Lover Boy recorded especially for BBC TV’s Top of the Pops.

                                          A special section devoted to Bohemian Rhapsody, recently voted the No.1 song of the past 50 years, including a unique documentary in which Brian May revisits the original 24 track studio and explains how this landmark song was created.

                                          A picture gallery featuring previously unseen shots of the band, and a specially re-edited version of the famous nude Bicycle Race filmed at Wembley Stadium in 1978 containing previously unseen footage discovered in the archive.

                                          Also included as a bonus hidden video is the rarely seen second edit of Bohemian Rhapsody, specially made for Top of The Pops as a means of injecting some variety into the band’s week-on-week appearances on the show over the 9 weeks the song remained at No.1 on the charts.

                                                Many thanks for this!
                                                I knew it had picked up considerable back sales but did not expect 480K
                                                You do not list any Music Club Sales for 92 I assume you do not have any numbers available or were there none? Can you explain the jump in 2006 (and 2005) Cannot be that LAWS effect as it was issued in 2003
                                                Cheers!

                                                • Hi jimmypages59

                                                  Great figures there for Wembley '86.

                                                  I saw on about page 5-6 of this topic sales figures for Queen Albums from Queen 1 to about Jazz (also Innuendo).

                                                  Do you or does anyone else have UK sales figures for albums running from 'The Game' to ' Made in Heaven'?

                                                  I think we already have total sales for Greatest Hits 1 and Greatest Hits 2....

                                                  Cheers

                                                    I've actually just noticed that my 1992 sales only start from July 1992, LAW 86 was released on 26th May of that year, so there are about 2 months (June & July) missing. In light of this I imagine it has easily passed 500,000 overall UK sales.

                                                    The Music Club sales only started in 1993, it's a bit like a movie, it gets released first into Cinemas, then you have to wait a few months until it is available to buy on DVD, Music Clubs have the same approach. The CD etc has to have been selling for a while into the shops etc then Music Clubs get them a few months later.

                                                    The sales jump can be explained as such. Between 1992 and 2003, the CD version had dealer price (Record Company to Retailer price) of £11.50-£13.99, then in 2003 it dropped to £9.15 and then in 2005 it dropped again to £4.60. So it has clearly been heavily reduced over the past few years hence the sales hikes.
