    Argentinean annual sales from Capif:


    http://books.google.com.ar/books?id=8Mh ... &q&f=false

    There, you can see the total sales per format from 1981 to 1990 and other sales details.

    If anybody wants to post a picture, it would be great.

    Queen were the best selling act of the year. Their two compilations sold a combined 499,711 copies.

    Roxette were still ruling, especially when they toured and achieved further sales.

    If anyone is interested, you can ask about specific acts and I will see if I can find anything.

    Interesting information! Great sales for Roxette and Queen, well I expected it for Queen but not for Roxette.
    I believe Argentina is the third biggest music market in Latin America after Brazil and Mexico? Or am I wrong about that ?

    Yes, Argentina generally ranks as the third biggest market of the region, tied with Colombia and ahead of any other country. The thing is, foreign albums (in English) sell proportionately better in Argentina than in Brazil and Mexico, sometimes more in absolute terms.

    Roxette did indeed have impressive sales. Further albums achieved lesser success, but still fared very well. Overall, they sold close to a million records.

    Queen's "Greatest Hits 2" went diamond in October 1999, with sales of 506,916 copies. It was the best selling English album of the decade, and second only to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" as the biggest ever. Queen's "Greatest Hits 1" is a lot more difficult to gauge because the way certifications are presented is a mess: one version went platinum 5 times over for sales of 300,000, while another one (the remaster edition of 1994) platinum 3 times over for sales of 180,000; combining them, we get 480,000 up to November 2006 plus a further 30,000 copies it moved since then (it was one of the most shipped albums of Decmeber 2007).

    Thanks HUR!
    I've found this list of best-selling albums of all time in Argentina

    http://www.ask.com/wiki/List_of_best-se ... _Argentina

    Don't know if it's correct but "Thriller", Queen's "Greatest Hits 2" and "Abbey Road" by the Beatles are the only foreign diamond-certified albums according to the list. Guns N'Roses were also big sellers.

    Yes, the list of diamond awards is correct. And there are other albums sold close or over 500,000 copies in Argentina, such Luis Miguel's "Nada Es Igual", Andrea Bocelli's "Romanza", Ricardo Arjona's "Historia", Queen's "Greatest Hits 1", Juan Luis Guerra's "Bacharta Rosa" and maybe a few others.

    "Abbey Road" did indeed sell over 500,000 according to certifications. Such awards were first introcuced in October 1999. I'm sure that Queen's "Greatest Hits 2" has now surpassed the Beatles' "Abbey Road" after 11 years of great back catalog sales. I used to have all the weekly charts from Capif (shipments-based) from 2000 to about 2006 and those two compilations by Queen generally made Top 10 appearences, especially in Christmas periods (they did in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2006). I would say that "Greatest Hits 2" is now on about 600,000 copies.

    The Beatles are, altogether, the best selling group ever.

    In October 1999, the diamond award were revealed with sales:

    1) Luis Miguel Romance 1.041.730

    2) Luis Miguel Segundo Romance 813.082

    3) Luis Miguel Aries 693.162

    4) Julio Iglesias El Amor 678.285

    5) Luis Miguel Romances 676.136

    6) Julio Iglesias Emociones 636.294

    7) Soledad Poncho Al Viento 620.510

    8) Fito Paez El Amor Despues Del Amor 614.869

    9) Michael Jackson Thriller 576.779

    10) Julio Sosa Album De Oro 551.890

    11) Queen Greatest Hits Vol. II 506.916

    Not because I'm fan but because I have information to back it up, I can confirm that "Greatest Hits 2" is the biggest catalog seller of that group of albums, except maybe for "Romance" by Luis Miguel.

    Yes, that is where I got the information from too. But no, I don't think they sold the same amount of copies, that would be too much of a coincidence. I think the journalist just forgot to include a figure of the Beatles or there is something weird with that award (which isn't shown in the Capif site).

    That award was included in the old CAPIF website http://web.archive.org/web/200412221958 ... =DILP&CO=2

    Argentina is the third biggest market in Latin America, but for Queen it is probably the best market in that continent. They have great numbers: the two compilations have sold altogether over 1 million copies, while the remaining catalogue has obtained good figures thanks to A Night At The Opera. HUR, I've just a curiosity: how is Absolute Greatest in Argentina? Is it moving a bit in the market or is it penalized by the fact that the two Greatest Hits have obtained an enormous success?
