OT but were albums sales that huge that 6 charting weeks (each of them out of the top 10) were enough to go Platinum in Australia at that time :o ?

Well Natalie Gacui's CD was released just before Christmas, and it's big sales time for albums in Australia.

is it suitable in this topic ?

read b pop section of bh ahad today, bagio (damasutra) was supposed to release an album with emi in 2000 (he said so on melodi tv3 12/1999). however, due to financial crisis, the album was never released and bagio loses his emi contract. in addition, he also said that damasutra will not be reunited, but i believe that damasutra had lose their recording contract due to the financial crisis.

They were signed by EMI in October 1976, then dropped after releasing only one single in November 1976 "Anarchy in the UK", in January 1977.

They then signed to A&M on 10th March 1977, but were again dropped even more quickly, on the 16th March 1977, before even releasing anything. Apparently A&M pressed 25,000 copies of "God Save the Queen", but it was never released (by A&M) and most copies were destroyed.

Then for a third time in under a year, they signed to a new label, Richard Bransons Virgin in May 1977 and finally released their 1st (and only) album in October 1977.
The mainstream labels backlash only added to their legacy in the end
