    Some interesting facts about Greatest Hits posted over in the ABBA sales thread by Zeus555

    ALBUMS WITH THE MOST UK TOP 75 WEEKS (Zeus55 Totals)

    1-Legend -- Bob Marley & The Wailers -- 545 Weeks
    2-ABBA Gold -- ABBA -- 526 Weeks
    3-Greatest Hits (One) -- Queen -- 518 Weeks

    The OCC say 524 Top 75 Weeks, for the Queen Compilation.
    They give it 7 Weeks too many. They include the 7 Top 75 Weeks of
    a Double CD, (Greatest Hits I & II), from 1994. That was a No.37 Hit,
    but its 7 Top 75 Weeks should not be included in the Chart Run of the
    1981 Greatest Hits Album. So, we remove 7 Weeks from The OCC Total
    = 517 Weeks. Then we add in a No.73 Week, for W/E 9th October 1982
    = 518 Weeks. For some reason, The OCC miss out that 1982 No.73 Position.

    The UK Album Chart has been a Top 100 for many Years. This includes 12th September 1992
    to February 5th 1994. However, The OCC only have Top 75's for that, (1992 to 1994), period.

    The OCC give Greatest Hits (One) by Queen, 788 Top 100 Weeks. That is
    wrong. You have to remove the 7 Top 100 Weeks of the 1994 Double CD. That
    gives 781 Weeks. Then you add in the No.73 Top 100 Week that they miss out,
    from October 1982. That gives 782 Weeks. So, that is its real Top 100 Weeks,
    from the Charts that The OCC have. The Queen Album loses 32 Top 100 Weeks
    from September 1992 to W/E 5th February 1994, as The OCC only has Top 75's.
    So, that's 782 Weeks + 32 = 814 Top 100 Weeks. So, the Queen Album was really
    the 1st UK Album to reach 800 Top 100 Weeks, 14 Weeks ago. But, The OCC don't
    have 32 of its Top 100 Positions.....

    So according to Zeus555 Greatest Hits weeks on chart should be as follows
    Top75 Weeks = 519 (Including this week) Officially 525
    Top100 weeks = 815 (Including this week) Officially 789

    Although the UK Album Chart was a Top 100 from W/E 12th September 1992 to W/E 5th February 1994, The OCC only
    have Top 75’s for that period. This means that ‘Greatest Hits’ loses 32 No.76 to No.100 Positions during that time.

    'Greatest Hits' (One) -- Queen

    Here are the 32 Top 100 Weeks that The OCC do not have for it:

    1992

    W/E 19th September – No.81
    W/E 26th September – No.93
    W/E 3rd October – No.85
    W/E 10th October – No.86
    W/E 24th October – No.80

    1993

    W/E 20th February – No.77
    W/E 27th February – No.81
    W/E 27th March – No.81
    W/E 10th April – No.84
    W/E 17th April – No.90
    W/E 24th April – No.89
    W/E 1st May – No.77
    W/E 22nd May – No.87
    W/E 10th July – No.85
    W/E 17th July – No.97
    W/E 24th July – No.82
    W/E 31st July – No.89
    W/E 7th August – No.80
    W/E 18th September – No.76
    W/E 25th September – No.95
    W/E 9th October – No.98
    W/E 23rd October – No.93
    W/E 30th October – No.98
    W/E 20th November – No.96
    W/E 4th December – No.84
    W/E 11th December – No.87
    W/E 18th December – No.84
    W/E 25th December – No.85

    1994

    W/E 1st January – No.83
    W/E 8th January – No.82
    W/E 22nd January – No.81
    W/E 29th January – No.87

    They also miss out a Top 75 Week for it on W/E 9th October 1982 - No.73.

    They give it 7 Top 75 Weeks that belong to 'Greatest Hits I & II' in 1994.

    They give it 789 Top 100 Weeks to W/E 14th September.

    It should be - 789 - 7 = 782.

    782 + 1 = 783.

    783 + 32 = 815 Weeks

    The OCC gives it 525 Top 75 Weeks. It should be 525 + 1 = 526 To 75 Weeks

    526 Top 75 Weeks - 7 Top 75 Weeks = 519 Top 75 Weeks

    The OCC give it these 7 Top 75 Weeks, which really belong to the 1994
    Double CD 'Greatest Hits I & II':

    W/E 19th November 1994 – 37-40-50-43-40-39-44

    I made the following statement on a Queen forum today with regard to quite a few people pointing out the fact that 'Queen never cracked America'. Would be interested to see if people on this forum agreed with myself or the others?
    I think the statement 'Queen never cracked America' is a bit of an urban myth, yes they never scaled the heights of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles or The Stones but in terms of record sales, ticket sales and especially influence they did very well indeed. In a football analysis I would say Queen were definitely a premier league team in America where as the other bands mentioned would be champions league.

    Albums sales in excess of 45,000,000, 12 different Platinum Albums, the 22nd most certified band in American history (according to RIAA) plus 6 platinum selling singles would certainly quantify the fact that Queen most definitely cracked America

    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!
