CSPC: Pink Floyd Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format – Part 2 – recent Compilations

This list of the most recent compilations is led by the 2001 package Echoes. A solid seller, this album was replaced one decade later by A Foot In The Door, which hasn’t taken the charts by fire but remains selling steadily week after week.

The difference with these packages is that they are aimed to be career-spanning. On their track lists, we notice the big 3 albums Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall are the main providers of attractiveness. Indeed, their songs represent a huge 93% of the last 2011 compilation tracks interest to listeners. Logically, most sales from those greatest hits are reassigned to their creators bringing huge additions to the aforementioned big 3.
