^I am stoked the GH is rising. This shows that they need to go back to the basics (ie. doing promotion).
Perhaps, its a blessing that Victoria is not joining, so they know they need to work a little extra harder and put in the efforts to get the band out there.
Hopefully, they will do more promotion along the way.
Completely agree! Lack of promo in 2007 (i.e. interviews) was a shame, so I'm really glad they're taking a more active approach this time. I really hope there's some more promo forthcoming (apart from Jonathan Ross), the radio interviews have got me wanting more!
By the way, Greatest Hits is midweek #113 today. Definitely expecting a climb into tomorrow's Top 100 mids.
On Friday/Saturday/Sunday and some of Monday, the GH wasn’t selling as strongly as it has been since then, so it is essentially playing catch up amongst other albums that achieved stronger sales earlier in the week.
Also, album downloads are the weakest percentage contribution for most albums... so, while it’s great to see the GH in the Top 5 on iTunes, it is a little deceiving in terms of the overall market. Being at #4 or #5 on iTunes represents less than 200 sales a day (yep, the album download market really is this weak).
Physicals and streaming are stronger elements of album sales, and the GH is relatively speaking not doing all that well in these forms.
