5. Bob Seger "Greatest Hits"
Sales this week: 11,473
This number would put Seger at number 94 on the main chart. Which would make him bigger than…
Madonna, whose stiff "Confessions Tour" album only moved 10,882.
And Diddy, whose "Press Play" only sold 10,797.
Bigger than the Pussycat Dolls, who only sold 10,648.
Bigger than the Decemberists, who only sold 6,029.
So who’s a star? Or, who’s a BIGGER STAR?
As for Madonna, you’d have to slide all the way down to number 136 on the catalog chart to find her "Immaculate Collection", which moved 2,529 copies this week, for a cume of 5,519,776. But it’s she that gets all the press. Isn’t Bob Seger that has-been from burned-out Detroit?
Wouldn't it be more interesting/informative to base "The Top 200" on total sales for that week? If the Seeg's Hits are outselling Madonna, Diddy, and the Pussycat Dolls, then Bob Seger's Greatest Hits should be on the chart!
What is the reasoning for separating current releases from catalog releases? Anybody know?
