Ben E King

Single
21.12.86 Stand by me (P - 2198) # 49, 13 weeks, 38.310
25.06.91 Stand by me (AMDY-5050) # 85, 4 weeks, 12.170

RIAJ
Stand by me (AMDY-5050) : gold 1992-04 (50.000)
Stand by me (AMDY-5050) : platinum 1994-05 (100.000)

Another exemple of how a poor showing at Oricon # 85 and 12.170 sales ended Platinum record in three years.

Contrary to what their chart position suggests, they seem fairly famous. They even have a Wikipedia page in Japanese

Wow, that's somewhat surprising, I have to say! Expected a bit more action :) Still, it's very interesting how popularity in Japan works. I remember being taken aback when I learn Kraftwerk charted no albums until 2003 - as I was just reading Wolfgang Flur's memoir and he recounted tales from their massively successful tour of Japan in 1981. It's surprising how fame didn't always correspond with the chart action...

Anyway, thank you very much for the effort! :D

It's uncomfortable to follow only oricon to draw conclusions on the charts. If we look at the certifications, over time, we see gold or platinum albums that have never been classified, like for Elton John, or Bjork, Janis Joplin and countless of others. The most spectacular is a 600.000 greatest hits package by Billy Joel that never charted.

Above the Ben E King single is a 12.000 Oricon and platinum two years after, that is over 100.000.

Most of the time, we can count for 20.000/50.000 for someone with a name and busy schedule in Japan.
