Kraftwerk! It is one of the favorite groups of mine.
Many albums including bootlegs are put on the market also in Japan.
However, though regrettable, the Japanese charts has not been entered.

Mario, I was tracking down TLC's Now & Forever sales & I'm sure they sold much more than 55K. Last time I checked each week they were in the top 100 they ranged from 76K-100K.

Thanx Mario,

i know that they sell a lot in Import, because the curious is that the Albums from Germany or Uk are cheaper than the Japanese one. But i like the Japan Press, because of the Obi and also for the Extras!

Regards
Eddy


PS: Have you the Chartrun for TdF Soundtracks from KW?

All the kraftwerk albums that I have are Japan Press. It is because Extras is contained in almost all Japan Press as Eddy says. For example, 5 or 6 Extra tracks was contained in the album of "Elektric Music" (unit of Karl Bartos of yuan kraftwerk).

Chartrun for TdF Soundtracks from KW is not immediately understood. Let's investigate and let you know.

As for Feeder's album, 8 discs are released in Japan. However, the album included in TOP100 is "Comfort in Sound."

Mario, how can I tell which sales are the correct ones & which ones are the ones in progress?

BTW, those Madonna album figures are heavily deflated. Seeing as from an article of ORICON itself from 2 years ago reported:


Album
Peak
Position
Sales
Cert

Like a Virgin 2 597K Platinum
True Blue 3 717K Platinum
You Can Dance 5 185K Gold
Like a Prayer 1 366K Platinum
I'm Breathless 1 322K Gold
The Immaculate Collection 5 409K Platinum
Erotica 5 368K Gold
Bedtime Stories 7 295K Gold
Something to Remember 9 353K Platinum
Ray of Light 7 249K Gold
