    Thanks MJ for the feedback.

    Do you think with the info taken from Billboard 78 and 79 that Saturday Night Fever and Spirits sold more than 37.200.000 and 14.300.000 estimated by you in your excelent breakdown of best selling albums.

    Spirits was a monster selling many copies in the first 10 weeks.For instance in New Zealand it was number 1 for only 4 weeks and spent barely 20 weeks in the charts.In spite of that the album was the 4th best seller of the year since Rianz charts were based on sales and no points.In Greece it sold 30.000 copies in just 8 weeks.

    Thanks MJ for your time.

      MJDangerous, do you know how much "Greatest Hits 2" by Queen has sold?. It was certified 4 times platinum while still selling in 1992. Maybe close to 200,000 copies by the end of that year. What about catalog sales?. Do you think that this album can have sold between 250,000 and 300,000 copies, overall?.

        But they printed "The Wall", so maybe it was Pink Floyd.


        It was for sure 'OFF THE WALL' from Michael Jackson.
        I've made the correction.

          for those interested last june i bought the BLITZ portugal magazine and on the 'top singles & albums 20 years ago' showed madonna doing the double, both 'like a prayer' single and album at the top of the charts...

          strange to see that back in june 1989 'like a prayer' was still number 1 single :-?

          There isn't any database with old charts but people that have old portuguese magazines from the 80's and 90's can find the charts there... i have over 1.000 magazines saved but i get headache just staring

                Hi, Mikerocha, maybe you can post some Portugal charts from the 80's when you have some spare time? I'm sure lots of people would be very grateful to you (incl. me, of course)!

                    I see Diana Ross at 5 with Diana from a chart in 1980 in an earlier reply, how has Diana Ross performed in the Porteguese Charts?

                      That would be fantastic if he could post those charts.
                      Maybe i can give a little impuls with another chart i found from end 1980.

                                                      well that would be a good idea

                                                      i was just checking that topic and many ppl were asking how to contact AFP to get information on these charts... as far as i know AFP only starting publishing charts in 1992... that's when the saturday chart countdown show on channel 1 (RTP) was named TOP +. Before that it was 'top discos' not sure if had anything to do with AFP. i watched an interview last year mentioning that AFP and RTP worked together since 1992. so only RTP holds the database of all charts :(

                                                      Ps! funny story: when i was 7/8 years old during the 90's i used to write down on a notebook myself the charts shown on TV, but those were only the TOP 30 albums... i don't think they showed the singles chart on tv... i can try to find that notebook too if my mother didn't throw it away
                                                      “B**** come here! B**** come here! B**** come here!”

                                                      “I’m staying right here.”
