    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!

    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 Ģ11.50-Ģ13.99, then in 2003 it dropped to Ģ9.15 and then in 2005 it dropped again to Ģ4.60. So it has clearly been heavily reduced over the past few years hence the sales hikes.
    understood! Yes 2 months of sales especially the 1st 2 months after release could represent significant sales. this are the 1st 5 weeks in the chart *2*-3-7-8-18 according the hanboo's Chart Histories thread - so yes well over 500K

                            I have received this email from EMI Aus:
                            21 November 2003 - emimusic Australia
                            'We are actually at 13 x platinum (platinum in Australia is 70,000 units)! EMI Australia picked up their catalogue in 1984 so with Warner’s sales included (which I have no idea what they are), I would safely assume this album has sold over 1 million units in this country.'

                            Comment


                            • Thatīs great, 1 miullion since 1984. The album was first released in 1981, and reached number 2 in the charts and spent 90 weeks, many of them between 1981 and 1982. It easily sold enough to be certified at least platinum, so i would say it could at 1.100.000.

                              Itīs a little dissapointed that Queen never made a great impact in australia, but their DVDīs and the musical did it well.

                              Greatest hits 2 reached number 4 and 36 weeks on the charts. It was certified 4 platinum in 1992, and it could be 400.000 by now. "A night at the opera" was number one, during 2 weeks, and spent 36 weeks on the charts. It was the fourth best selling album of 1976. it could be at 300.000.

                                -"A kind of magic": number one in 35 (other sources say 42) countries?. seems not true

                                -"Love of my life": Argentina and Brazil?. It could be right about Argentina, simce it spent over a year in the charts and it was a record breaker at that time.

                                -"Las palabras de amor": number one in Poland?.

                                -"I want it all": number one in several european countries?. i donīt tink so.

                                -"Iīm going slightly mad": number one in Hong kong. It seems strange

                                What about "Killer queen" and other singles?.

                                  • Queen Album Chart Positions in UK this week:

                                    93. (91) GREATEST HITS I II & III (Queen)
                                    156. (173) GREATEST HITS (Queen)

                                    Surely Greatest Hits will be the 1st Uk album to hit over 1000 weeks in the top 200? Its on about 932 at the moment

                                    Comment


                                    • Some more great figures from MJDangerous, these are exact total sales in the UK as of this week.

                                      Queen – Platinum Collection : 1,532,177

                                      Queen - Live At Wembley 86 : 293,925 (DVD)

                                      Does anybody know why Queen/EMI are not updating there UK sales awards, we now know for a fact that The Platinum Collection should be 5x Platinum and that the original Greatest Hits should now be certified 17x Platinum not 11x Platinum not to mention there entire back catalogue is in need of an update.

                                        Interesting to see the updated figures.

                                        For example, you could say that Night At the Opera should be at least 4 times platinum as it must have sold 1.3-.1.4 Million after 32 years!

                                        If anyones interested Queen are still in the top 200 Album chart this week:

                                        115. (93) GREATEST HITS I II & III (Queen)
                                        138. (156) GREATEST HITS (Queen)


                                        Greatest Hits must be the first album to sell 6 million albums in the UK - even with the platinum collection it still sells well!

                                        Also in the Top Pop Catalog Chart in the USA - Queen Greatest Hits is currently at 16 (16 last week as well)
                                        - 684 weeks on combined Billboard 200 + Top Pop Catalog Chart
