France Album Sales: Bob Marley

Survival (1979) Era

A real force in France music industry by that point, Bob Marley continued his strong run of releases by issuing Survival in 1979. Some kind of disappointment in the UK (#20) and in the US (#70), the album was still strong in France. It peaked at #12 at Christmas time, selling almost 100,000 units. In the same way as Rastaman Vibration, the set failed to generate one big hit but was consistent all over it.

En el momento que escucho Screw Face de Bob Marley, me genera una
sensación de mucha armonía.


Thank you, Guillaume. Very interesting.

I guess it must have taken a lot of time in this particular case due to the size of his catalogue. The result totally exceeds my expectations, 10 million, wow!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
