        Now trading as Jeff Lynne's ELO - Lynne and keyboards player Richard Tandy, both 71, are the only members of the group on board at present - The Electric Light Orchestra's first album of new material in four years, From Out Of Nowhere, debuts atop the artist album chart. It is Lynne’s fifth No.1 – ELO’s eighth and ninth studio albums, 1979’s Discover and 1981’s Time topped the chart, as did their 2005 compilation All Over The World: The Very Best Of when re-promoted in 2016, and Lynne was a member of supergroup Traveling Wilburys, whose Collection was No.1 in 2007.

        Despite its lofty debut, From Out Of Nowhere’s first week consumption of 21,062 units (including 298 from sales-equivalent streams) it a mere 34.25% of the 61,497 copies that ELO’s last album, Alone In The Universe, sold when debuting and peaking at No.4 in 2015.

              It is more than 34 years since Simply Red released their first studio album, Picture Book, and they maintain their record of never missing the Top 10, with 12th set, Blue Eyed Soul – a collection of new songs penned by their 59-year-old frontman Mick Hucknall – debuting at No.6 (9,772 sales). Including compilations, it is their 14th Top 10 album and 17th chart album in all. Hucknall has also released two solo albums, one of which made the Top 10.

                while veteran group The Who’s eponymous first album for 13 years, debuts at No.3 (43,511 sales). The Who were ahead on the first four of the week’s sales flashes, but were unable to hang on for what would have been only their second No.1, more than 48 years after the first, 1971’s Who’s Next. It is their first album of new material since Endlesswire, which debuted and peaked at No.9 (26,949 sales) in 2006, and although other musicians were used in its creation, The Who now comprise, effectively, just lead singer Roger Daltrey, 75, and guitarist/vocalist Pete Townshend, 74.

                    Formed in Birmingham 48 years ago, melodic hard rock quintet Magnum are still a force to be reckoned with. Lead singer Bob Catley (72) and guitarist Tony Clarkin (73) – both founder members of the band – are still on board, and their 21st studio album, The Serpent Rings, becomes their 18th chart entry, debuting at No.36 (2,482 sales). In Germany, it is also their 18th chart album, surpassing the other 17 by opening at a lofty No.5.

                          t’s a great day for Green Day, whose pithy 13th studio album, Father Of All… debuts atop the album chart, becoming their fourth No.1.

                          In the seventh change of leadership of the chart in a row, it achieved consumption of 23,389 units (including 2,055 from sales-equivalent streams) – 24.26% down on its immediate predecessor, Revolution Radio, which also debuted at No.1 in October 2016 on consumption of 30,880 units.

                          That, in turn, is well below the opening tallies of 89,385 and 79,770 that produced Green Day’s previous No.1 debuts, American Idiot (2004) and 21st Century Breakdown (2009). It is even further below their record weekly sale of 104,790 set by American Idiot on its 14th week of availability, in the sales period immediately prior to Christmas 2004, when it was ranked 13th in the chart.

                          American Idiot is by far the band's biggest album, with to-date consumption of 2,307,385 units (2,209,930 pure sales), followed by their third album Dookie, which gave them their breakthrough in 1994, and has consumption of 1,016,491 (982,586 pure sales) copies, despite peaking at No.13. Including live albums and compilations, Green Day have placed 15 albums in the Top 75, and nine in the Top 10. Two of the rock/punk trio’s three members – leader Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt - have been with them since their formation in 1987, while Tre Cool joined in 1990. All are 47 years old.

                          Incidentally, with 10 succinct tracks and a playing time of 26 minutes, Father Of All is little more than a third of the length of 21st Century Breakdown, whose 18 songs occupied more than 69 minutes.

                            Finally seeing the light of day, 46 years after the fact, Live At The Royal Albert Hall 1974 debuts at No.18 (3,417 sales) for Bryan Ferry. When Roxy Music albums are added to the tally - and some compilations that have charted mix his solo material with Roxy recordings – it is Ferry’s 35th chart album

                                  Last Alan Jones Report

                                  Ozzy Osbourne topped the album chart twice as a member of Black Sabbath, most recently with their 2013 reunion album 13, but scores the highest-charting album of his solo career with 12th such set, Ordinary Man, opening at No.3 on first week consumption of 12,869 units. Consisting entirely of Osbourne originals, including collaborations with Elton John and Post Malone, it is Osbourne’s first solo album since 2010, when Scream debuted and peaked at No.12 on sales of 10,772 copies. Although missing out on the main prize, Ordinary Man is No.1 on the vinyl and cassette charts, with 1,951 sales in the former, and 2,357 in the latter format. Osbourne’s previous highest-charting solo album was his first, Blizzard Of Oz, which debuted and peaked at No.7 in 1980

                                    Irish blues and folk singer Rory Gallagher passed away in 2015, but his legacy has been kept alive ever since with a consistent string of posthumous compilations including Blues, which hit No.17 in June last year. Now, he returns to the album chart once more with Check Shirt Wizard – Live In ’77, a 20-song collection culled from a tour he undertook that year in support of his album Calling Card. The collection charts at No.26 (2,872 sales), the first time he has had back to back Top 30 albums since 1973.

                                      To mark their 20th anniversary, alt.rock band Therapy? have re-recorded some of their most famous hits as live
                                      in-studio versions as a suitably alternate spin on the concept of a Greatest Hits collection. It debuts at No.40 (2,005 sales). Their ninth chart album in total, it is their highest-charting since Semi-Detached reached No.21 in 1998.

                                      There should always be room for veterans and beating even Therapy? for longevity are the Boomtown Rats, with a chart career dating back to 1977. Citizens Of Boomtown is the first studio album for Bob Geldof et al since 1984’s unloved In The Long Grass. It lands at No.48 with 1,876 sales, their eighth chart album all told and their first of original material to register since V Deep peaked at No.64 in 1982.
