      61 (61) Queen Greatest Hits

      Out of interest if you are reading this Zeus555, how does QGH now compare to ABBA Gold and Bob Marley Legend for weeks on chart and weeks inside the Top75? Not that this matters but it's always nice to compare!
      Zeus555 has kindly updated this information on the ABBA sales thread

        • Came across this interesting article form Music & Media Magazine Dated February 23rd 1991
          One week after the release of their 16th album, Queen are already breaking their own record. Released on February 4th, Innuendo is the bands Quickest-selling album on a shipment basis. The LP shipped Gold in Germany, Holland, Italy, Switzerland and UK. Initial shipments amount to 675,000, while current sales are now approaching the million mark.
          Those figures compare to the band's previous and best selling album, The Miracle, that sold close to 1.5 million (excluding UK). EMI expects Innuendo to easily surpass those figures. This has all been achieved without the band involved in any promotion. No concert tour is scheduled for this year either.
          The LP crashed into both the UK and Italian Charts at No1. It entered the charts in Holland at No3, Denmark at No5 and jumped from No72 to No2 in Germany. It has also charted in Sweden, Spain, Norway, Finland, Ireland, Switzerland and Belgium. The Dutch entry sets another record. For the first time in 11 years an LP has entered the charts in the Top5. The last time this occurred was on July 12th 1980 when both The Rolling Stone (Emotional Rescue) and Queen (The Game) entered at No2 and No3 respectively.
          Meanwhile the title track of the LP is Top 20 in every European territory excluding France and Sweden

                    Queen’s Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection reaches a new high position on the BB200 during its Catalog run as it rises to #64. It was at #48 in its one week on the BB200 as a current album, back in 2002.

                    Queen’s Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection returns to the top 10 Catalogue for the third time at #9, all three top 10 weeks have been this year. EAS points for most of Queen’s hits shifted back from Greatest Hits (which has not been higher than #18 this year) to The Platinum Collection this week…

                    What is EAS? and how does it work? Is this the reason why Queen's chart performance is either The Platinum Collection or Greatest Hits.

                                                No24 - Bob Marley - Legend
                                                No70 - Queen - Greatest Hits

                                                UK Album Chart - Most Weeks Top 75
                                                540Weeks = Bob Marley - Legend
                                                526 Weeks = ABBA - Gold
                                                520Weeks = Queen Greatest Hits

                                                UK Album Chart - Most Weeks Top 100
                                                796Weeks = ABBA - Gold
                                                784 Weeks = Queen - Greatest Hits
                                                783Weeks = Bob Marley - Legend

                                                Queen + Bob gain one week on Abba in the Weeks in Top200

                                                1,253 weeks = Bob Marley - Legend

                                                With Queen, can't find the last time they charted with the original Greatest Hits album - for a long time now, they've been charting with the remastered version which is at almost 300 weeks on the chart.
