  1. Hey MJD,

    I am very impressed with your works after reading several analyses. Keep up the excellent work. I have several requests, which are:

    1. I think it would be better if you put an extra page about the total album (all types) sales per country. I don’t know if you have included this particular page on every artist as I’ve only seen it on Nirvana and Pink Floyd. It is fascinating to add this page since the readers can see which country generates the most sales and primary markets for the artists.

    2. I would like to see the analyses of these following artists:

    – AC/DC
    – Elton John
    – Pearl Jam
    – Queen
    – Oasis
    – Radiohead
    – Red Hot Chilli Peppers

    I know it’s a lot of work, but it will be great to find out how the published artists compete with their contemporaries. I look forward to reading the in-depth analyses of the artists mentioned above. Good luck!

    1. Hi Hagai!

      The page with totals is now a recurrent on all articles. Only the oldest ones do not have it and as they are being updated it is added!

      As for the artists you mention, two of them are among the next 7 artists planned so far but you will have to wait to know which ones 😉

  2. I would like to see the CSPC for:

    The Who
    The Doors
    The Moody Blues
    Simon & Garfunkel
    Deep Purple
    Kiss
    Duran Duran
    Eurythmics
