Christmas Catalog Thread - Christmas On The Catalog Charts

Hi Folks,

This thread has been UPDATED to include the 2011-2012 Christmas season!

This thread will contain the results of my research into the Christmas-related entries on the following charts:
- Top Pop Catalog (May 1991 - present)
- Billboard Comprehensive Albums (November 2003 - November 2009)
- The Billboard 200 (December 2009 - present)

The focus on the last two categories will be on albums that were Catalog eligible, or (during the Comprehensive years) ineligible for the Billboard 200 (i.e. Comprehensive-Only).

I'll start out with an dictionary-style listing of every one of the 262 Christmas albums that spent one or more weeks on the Catalog chart and the twelve Christmas albums that spent time on the Comprehensive chart and/or Billboard 200, but not the Catalog chart. (Two of these were bona-fide catalog albums that did not chart high enough to reach the Catalog chart but reached the BB200.)

I'll follow that up with some records and other interesting trivia, followed by the complete chart runs on Catalog and Comprehensive for these albums. Finally, I'll even give some track listings for the many various artist compilations

All just to be out-of-date again eventually. :)

Now for some notes about the definition of a Christmas album. I included anything that had a winter theme and an end-of-year chart trajectory, such as the Winter Solstice series from Windham Hill. I also included The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack, even though that is more of a Halloween album. A general rule of thumb is that if it could chart on Billboard Holiday Albums, I included it here.

My sources for this information include Billboard.biz, Billboard.com, and helpful postings from 2m @ PULSE (M2M @ UKMIX) and Hanboo @ UKMIX. But by all means, if you find any omissions or other errors, please contact me. I want to know about it!

Enjoy, Miguelito

DICTIONARY OF CHRISTMAS CATALOG ALBUMS ON THE CATALOG, BILLBOARD 200, AND COMPREHENSIVE CHARTS

UPDATED Through 2011-12 Season

Entry number (Catalog peak/weeks) (Top 200 peak/weeks), Title - First date on Catalog/Comprehensive (dd/mm/yyyy)
Seasons: number of Christmas seasons on: CATalog chart (total/seasons in top 5/top 10/top 20) (CO=Comprehensive-Only), T200 (Top 200) chart (total/seasons in top 40/top 50/top 75/top 100) (N/A=none)
- Note: The Top 200 means the Comprehensive chart from 2003 through 2008, and the Billboard 200 thereafter.
CAT: for each Catalog season - year, #peak/weeks
T200: for each Top 200 season - year, #peak/weeks
Orig-BB200: Billboard 200 information from the album's original run - first year, #peak/weeks (or if N/A, year of release)
Orig-T200: Information from the album's original run on the Comprehensive chart (2003-08) or Billboard 200 (thereafter) - first year, #peak/weeks (omitted if no original BCA run, or Comprehensive-Only)

Notes:
1. All Top 200 information (except Orig-T200) includes only runs while an album was also Catalog or was not eligible for the Billboard 200 (i.e. Comprehensive-Only).
2. My definition of a Christmas season is the first week of July of a year through the last week of June of the next year (e.g. Christmas season 2007 = July 2007 through June 2008).

I'm sorry, I don't. I can tell you that her album, "My Kind Of Christmas", hit #28 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Holiday Albums chart in 2000, and that it has not been seen on any of the Billboard charts that allow recurrents (Catalog albums, Holiday albums or Comprehensive) since the early weeks of 2001. As a matter of fact, that is a unique feat among #1 Holiday albums. Every other album to hit #1 on the Holiday charts has gone on to chart again in at least one subsequent year. Given that Ms. Aguilera was unable to crack the Holiday top 40 (at the time) or Catalog top 50 as early as 2001, I think it's safe to say that the preponderance of sales came in that first year, and very little since then.

Notes:
(*1) - Christmas In The Aire by Mannheim Steamroller has the most Top 3 weeks for an album that didn't hit #1. It reached #2 for three straight Christmas seasons but could never overcome Miracles -- The Holiday Album by Kenny G.
(*2) - Faith: A Holiday Album by Kenny G is the shortest charting album on this list that made its catalog debut five or more years ago, with 24 weeks on the Catalog chart despite eight of those at #1.
(*3) - Defying the trend for Christmas albums to get gradually (or not so gradually!) weaker as the years go by, A Charlie Brown Christmas (Soundtrack) by the Vince Guaraldi Trio has gotten stronger; from a peak of #31 in the 1991 season, to reaching the Top 10 for the first time in 1998, the Top 5 for the first time in 2005, and #1 for the first time in 2007 season on January 12, 2008 in its 93rd week on the Catalog chart.
(*4) - The Christmas Collection by Il Divo and Peace On Earth by Casting Crowns are the only albums on this list to get all of their Top 3 weeks in the same Christmas season (2006 and 2009, respectively).

Finally in the Records category, here are some records relating to Peak positions on the main album chart (Comprehensive chart through November 2009, then Billboard 200 thereafter), and Longevity of albums on the Catalog and Top 200 charts.

UPDATED Through 2011-12 Season
(If position changed in 2011-12, old position is listed in red)

HIGHEST PEAK IN THE TOP 200 (AS CATALOG/COMP-ONLY)

1. (# 4) - Noel, Josh Groban (2008)
2. (#10) - The Christmas Collection, Il Divo (2006)
3. (#11) - Peace On Earth, Casting Crowns (2009)
(tie) My Christmas, Andrea Bocelli (2010)
5. (#12) - The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection (EP), Taylor Swift (2009)
6. (#19) - The Lost Christmas Eve, Trans-Siberian Orchestra (2007)
(tie) Glory In The Highest: Christmas Songs Of Worship, Chris Tomlin (2010)

(tie) Christmas Celebration, Mannheim Steamroller (2005) (#19-tie)

ALBUMS WHICH PEAKED HIGHER ON THE TOP 200 AS CATALOG ALBUMS THAN ON ORIGINAL RUN (Better the Second Time Around)

Note: This list is ranked by number of positions by which the "catalog" run's peak exceeded the original run's peak, then by peak position. The list uses the Billboard 200 peak for albums that peaked before November 2003, or after November 2009, or between those dates but reached only the Billboard 200 and not the Comprehensive in their initial year. I realize this doesn't compare apples to apples but it's the best that can be done.

Note 2: Albums with zero weeks on the Billboard 200 in their initial runs are not listed.

1. (121) - Christmas With Dino, Dean Martin (#72 (2006) vs #193-BB200 (2004))

OLDEST CHRISTMAS ALBUMS TO REACH THE CATALOG CHARTS

(Note: I'm open to correction here as this information was only moderately researched. This list is just oldest by year of release, not oldest by age at last appearance on Catalog. Paul Grein's recent Top 40 Christmas Albums article was a big help.)

PROGRESS OF SEASONAL RECORDS - COMPREHENSIVE CHART/BILLBOARD 200

NOTE: "Consecutive Weeks" refers to the longest string of chart weeks each year (including Christmas Day) with one or more Christmas albums on the chart.

NOTE: For the 2003-2004 through 2008-2009 seasons, the Comprehensive chart is used for these records; for the 2009-2010 season and later seasons, the Billboard 200 is used. In both cases, only Catalog-eligible Christmas albums are considered. Christmas albums that charted only on the Comprehensive chart, not on the Billboard 200 or Catalog charts, are also included in the totals; this category was eliminated by the 2008-2009 Christmas season.

This thread isn't about Canada. Even if it was, they are 13 Christmas albums in the top 40, no need to spam a great thread like this one with Celine Dion, they are enough threads relating to her Madonna or Mariah.

I'm sorry, I don't. I can tell you that her album, "My Kind Of Christmas", hit #28 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Holiday Albums chart in 2000, and that it has not been seen on any of the Billboard charts that allow recurrents (Catalog albums, Holiday albums or Comprehensive) since the early weeks of 2001. As a matter of fact, that is a unique feat among #1 Holiday albums. Every other album to hit #1 on the Holiday charts has gone on to chart again in at least one subsequent year. Given that Ms. Aguilera was unable to crack the Holiday top 40 (at the time) or Catalog top 50 as early as 2001, I think it's safe to say that the preponderance of sales came in that first year, and very little since then.

Regards, Miguelito
Thank you very much for the info! :D
