          Judas Priest sold millions of albums in their heyday i.e the 1980s but almost exclusively in the US. Other than the US and Canadian certifications and a couple of UK certifications, Priest attracted little attention in other parts of the world, where their sales is quite mediocre.

                        No I dont.
                        But you can get the required details through the searchable database available at the CRIA website i.e http://cria.ca/cert_db_search.php.
                        Just put in the start date and end date.....and search for the required information.

                                      Priest's albums are so under-certified in this country, it's not even funny. Sony really needs to update their catalogue.

                                              I expected much better opening sales...could pick up in the next few weeks though, esp with the big tour coming up.
