France Album Sales: AC/DC
Live (1992) Era
Positively using their comeback, AC/DC released Live album in 1992. With a track list owning Hells Bells, Highway To Hell, Thunderstruck, Shoot To Thrill, Back In Black, You Shook Me All Night Long, Moneytalks, T.N.T. and more, a record can only sell bucketloads. Add to that the legendary energy of AC/DC live shows, the album Live ended up being regarded as a fully valid greatest hits package.
On one side, it downgraded a lot catalog sales of Who Made Who, which weren’t that much of a big deal anyway. In the other side, this release created a monster of catalog sales. A #3 album in 1992, the album peaked at #11 in 1993, #17 in 1995, #40 in 2001 and #29 in 2003, not even mentioning the never ending re-entries lower down the charts. Selling a calculated 366,000 units up to the end of 1993, the album was just getting started.
