        Very unusual that 'Gold' peaked lower than 'More Gold'. In the ABBA charts thread, member HUR has a possible explanation:
        Gold seems to have charted very late locally, maybe some missing charts from 1992/early 1993?
        Can anyone confirm this?

              The album chart went from weekly to fortnightly at the beginning of 1991, however, there are no missing charts from 1992/early 1993. As you'll see when I post the no.1s for this period, most of the no.1 albums around this time are various artist compilations.

              It wasn't unusual for albums to chart fairly late in Zimbabwe. Thriller, for example, was released in December 1982 but didn't make the chart until July 1984!

                        Thank you! it's strange that "Eternal flame" didn't chart there.
                        and my last request for now-the singles chart info for Journey, REO Speedwagon and Van Halen please.

                                                              Note: no Madonna albums are listed in the A-Z of hits, this is obviously an error/omission as Like A Prayer topped the album chart for 6 weeks ~ presumably, other albums must have charted as well but none are listed in Christopher Kimberley’s book.
