    France Best Selling Albums Ever:
    Update Part 7
    http://chartmasters.org/2017/01/france- ... rt-7-20-1/

    Queen – Greatest Hits II (1991) : TBD (24,000 copies sold in 2016)
    What? How come Queen album Greatest Hits II features on this list so high? As always when doing such rankings, we need to set up eligibility and management rules. Some of them aren’t as clear as water, opened to debate. Do we compile a strict, technical list by allowing only pure sales of the original package or do we use a more functional logic by factoring in deluxe editions, 2/3 CDs packs which contain the exact same record. Last year, I went with the second choice. As seen in the example of Génération Goldman, such 2CD packages are always used as a replacement purchase depending on the price. Buying one of both formats makes the purchase of the other useless, so functionally speaking the consumer is really doing the same action by getting the stand-alone CD or a 2CD pack containing it. I excluded sales of 2000 compilation The Platinum Collection from Queen individual Greatest Hits tallies due to its specific brand. Chart runs of each products make it very clear that when Platinum Collection sells well individual packages do not and vice versa though. Thus, I’m now merging their total together, as done for such releases related to various other albums from this ranking. If Greatest Hits II charted only one week this year, the 3CD set lasted 44 weeks inside the Catalog ranking, being the strongest right in time for Christmas, this brings it 24,000 units for the year.
    How much it sold in total to date though? – its sales are mentioned as TBD. Previously stated at 1,52 million units sold by the individual album, its stand-alone article will soon be posted anew to take into account all packages, giving it a new total to date.

    Thank you for this! Very nice overview.

    For some reason, the above doesn't include the Flash Gordon soundtrack, which was listed with a Gold award (supposed to have been requested in December 2002 by Hollywood Records) some years ago but now that award doesn't show up anymore on the RIAA database.

    Here is a screenshot of how the RIAA website looked like at the time, thanks to my friend Braca:

    @HollywoodRecs @QueenWillRock Queen's "Greatest Hits" was certified 8 times #Platinum in 2006. It's eligible for 9x #Platinum. Or #Diamond?

    Queen's GH went 8xP in May 2006.

    The 5/31/06 Catalog Chart:

    Queen's GH was at #7 with 5,852,065.

    oldbloke's latest estimate through the end of 2016 is 7,360,000. Rounded figure.

    That's 1,454,000 in sales.

    Definitely 9xP. Probably 10xP.

    Border wolf hi. Thanks for putting up something a bit different. Its very interesting how the value of vinyl has exploded over the last 10 years or so and I always buy vinyl when I can, obsessively in fact. What I would say though however is that copy of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is the value of a mint copy of the blue vinyl 1975 limited edition of only 200 copies that was handed out to EMI staff. In fact pretty much all the vinyl on your list are ultra rare limited copies, not simply original pressings.

    Also some good news, Radio ga ga is on the new Trainspotting 2 soundtrack so hopefully should add some extra sales.

    The 10 most expensive vinyl singles
    By Chris Parkin on 10 January 2017
    http://www.redbull.com/en/music/stories ... ngles-list

    The value of vinyl is going up faster than you can say Martin Shkreli – the name of the man who reportedly coughed up £1.6m for a one-of-a-kind copy of Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. So have you and your parents clung on to your vinyl collection? We hope so.
    Last year, Ringo Starr sold his copy of the Beatles' White Album (No. 0000001) for £650,000 [€762,000/$800,000]. And the price paid for records by obscure acid-folk and psychedelia acts – records by the likes of Tinkerbell Fairydust, Open Mind and Trees – is, quite frankly, cosmic. Prog, krautrock, reggae and indie-rock: it's all on the up.
    Just to underline how valuable these dusty old records can be, here's a brief list of some of the most expensive vinyl singles.

    Erotica by Madonna
    Value: £2,500 [€2,932/$3,079]

    Midsummer Night's Scene by John's Children
    Value: £4,000 [€4,692/$4,928]

    Spirit In The Night by Bruce Springsteen
    Value: £4,070 [€4,774/$5,015]

    Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
    Value: £5,000 [€5,865/$6,160]


    Kind Hearted Woman Blues by Robert Johnson
    Value: £7,000 [€8,206/$8,623]

    God Save The Queen by Sex Pistols
    Value: £10,000 [€11,724/$12,317]

    Street Fighting Man by The Rolling Stones
    Value: £13,850 [€16,231/$17,058]

    Do I Love You? (Indeed I Do) by Frank Wilson
    Value: £15,000 [€17,575/$18,475]

    Love Me Do by The Beatles
    Value: £80,500 [€94,321/$99,158]

    That’ll Be The Day by The Quarrymen
    Value: £100,000 [€117,153/$123,167] (some say £200,000)
