    None listed for East 17, but one album is listed for Take That:

    7 Aug 1995: No.8 ~ Nothing Else.
    Thank you for this!

    I was wondering about Billy Joel, Gary Barlow, Genesis, Huey Lewis and the News, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Paul Simon and Simon and Garfunkel albums? Sorry for long list!

    Thank you.

    Very unusual that 'Gold' peaked lower than 'More Gold'. In the ABBA charts thread, member HUR has a possible explanation:
    Gold seems to have charted very late locally, maybe some missing charts from 1992/early 1993?
    Can anyone confirm this?

    The album chart went from weekly to fortnightly at the beginning of 1991, however, there are no missing charts from 1992/early 1993. As you'll see when I post the no.1s for this period, most of the no.1 albums around this time are various artist compilations.

    It wasn't unusual for albums to chart fairly late in Zimbabwe. Thriller, for example, was released in December 1982 but didn't make the chart until July 1984!
