Most of those albums have already been discussed through previous lists. A trio of albums need to be highlighted yet. Bob Marley perennial seller Legend sits at the top of the list, which looks natural as iconic as it is. Jean-Jacques Goldman owns the greatest selling compilation among local acts, again quite naturally giving his dominance on French music scene. ABBA cult Gold album is at #2 and still going strong. Out of the top 7 albums, those three happen to be the only ones not almost completely replaced and as such are hot favorites to extend their lead.
