Early 70s is really when the band popularity decelerated. How Can You Mend a Broken Heart was a huge global hit, selling an impressive 2,22 million units although it wasn’t even issued in key markets like the UK, Germany, France or Japan.
Then Run To Me was already not that big but still an OK seller. The tough flop of Life in a Tin Can was validated in the singles front too with virtually no sales at all.
