    In the back cover of their 2004 box set "Metalogy" it says over 20 million albums.

    Judas Priest sold millions of albums in their heyday i.e the 1980s but almost exclusively in the US. Other than the US and Canadian certifications and a couple of UK certifications, Priest attracted little attention in other parts of the world, where their sales is quite mediocre.

    No I dont.
    But you can get the required details through the searchable database available at the CRIA website i.e http://cria.ca/cert_db_search.php.
    Just put in the start date and end date.....and search for the required information.

    Priest's albums are so under-certified in this country, it's not even funny. Sony really needs to update their catalogue.
