"Along with the ups and downs, among the Classic Rock groups Queen also never received the immaculate press that accompanied the likes of the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. Their success isn’t rated nearly as high as them either, Queen are instead put alongside the likes of U2, the Eagles and AC/DC. Where do they really rank according to the facts? What are the biggest hits among all their golden tracks? Which albums are the most successful once the sales of compilations they generated are factored in?"

Fantastic analysis by MJD, I think his findings might surprise a few people, especially those that have dismissed Queen as a major artist. Well worth a look at and it confirms what we Queen fanatics have known for years.........they are Huge all over the world! :D

Does anyone know where the sales for the re-issue of NOTW will be allocated? We already know that the picture disc has sold 1977 copies and surely the box set should add at least another 500 or so. So if these sales of an estimated 2,500 copies are given as UK sales then the album should chart inside the Top50!

We'll have to wait until next Friday to see unless someone can shed some light on the matter ;-)

News of the World re-enters the UK charts at No58, 5 places below Greatest Hits!

Will this be deemed a success by the powers that be, I'm not sure. It has to be pointed out that the UK charts is based on units sold so obviously the revenue form NOTW will be considerably larger than that of GH. There is also no confirmation yet on units sold or wether the total sold will include the Picture Disc as well, we shall wait and see

Germany Top 100 Album Chart CW 48/2017 (24.11.2017-30.11.2017)

1 1 10.11.2017 Peter Maffay - MTV Unplugged
2 Neu 24.11.2017 Black Sabbath - The End (Live In Birmingham)
3 Neu 24.11.2017 Wirtz - Die fuenfte Dimension
4 Neu 24.11.2017 Luciano - Eiskalt
5 Neu 24.11.2017 Iron Maiden - The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter

34 Neu 24.11.2017 Queen - News Of The World


Is this a good result for Queen? If anybody finds out anymore chart positions for the NOTW 40th Box set please post them. I do think Queen Productions have made a mistake by not releasing a 3cd/dvd version of the box and that chart positions and sales would be a lot better if they had!

I agree with you. I would have expected a multi-format release, able to satisfy the tastes of everybody. The sales would have surely been better.
At the moment I have the following results:

Netherlands: #92
Italy #96

Does anybody know why Hollywood records occasionally switches Queen's digital sales from the individual Greatest Hits albums to the Platinum Collection and visa versa? This week in America The Platinum Collection has dropped out of all charts to be replaced by Greatest Hits.

That time of the year again when Thank God It's Christmas gets played. By no means a big seller for Queen but it does okay every Christmas.
I do wish that Queen would do an official video for the track, perhaps an animated Christmas themed one, I'm sure it would do wonders for the songs popularity :D I wonder what it's worldwide sales would be in the digital era?
