Thank you very much for all this data, Nelson! Fantastic answer to my request! From where did u get these kind of data?

Regarding that question about "Bat Out Of Hell" sales in Australia, take a look at these two links:

http://www.google.pt/search?q=cache:93STEcA8e9EJ:www.aria.com.au/albums.htm+meat+loaf+platinum+australia&hl=pt-PT

http://www.undercover.com.au/news/2003/20031013_meatloaf.html

from the later:
"...Meatloaf's Bat Out Of Hell is Sony Music Australia's biggest selling album ever. "'Bat Out Of Hell' is our biggest album in our history with sales of over 22 x platinum which equates to over 1.5 million copies since release" Sony Catalogue and Compilation Manager Matthew Tang tells Undercover News."

Again, thank you Nelson! You keep surprising me everyday!

Nice work nelson, you did your homework :D
but I think his worldwide sales for Purple Rain have got to be more than 14.7 million. It's certified 13X platinum in the US alone. :o

The "Purple Rain" sales of 14.7 million were referred to sales till around September 1992 when the "Symbol" album was being released, that number came from a detailed article about Prince worldwide sales by Minneapolis and big Prince fan Jon Bream. Also in that year, Warner said in an Billboard article that the album had sold 4.5 million copies outside US.
Presently we can be sure that "Purple Rain" sold more than 18 million but i'm not sure if it went past 20 million. I would say, as a follower of Prince career for more than 20 years that "Purple Rain" sales are somewhere between 19 and 21 million at the most.
Hanboo told me that "Purple Rain" Soundscan sales are past 2.2 million presently.
In the UK, seeing that "Diamonds and Pearls" was certified last year for 900,000 sales i would say that "Purple Rain" is above 1 million by now in UK.
In Germany was certified in 1993 for 500,000 sales.
In France "Diamond and Pearls" sold 450,000 (in Billboard magazine that i own) so i would say that "Purple Rain" sold at least 500,000 there too. In Canada sold 600,000 by December 1984, so with catalog sales in the CD format maybe a figure of 750,000 is acceptable. In Japan, according to Mario, sold 200,000 and in Australia at least 140,000.
