CSPC: Pink Floyd Popularity Analysis
Remaining Long Format – Part 3 – Live Albums
Pink Floyd has never been regarded as a best of band. They are absolutely a strong live act though. Both Delicate Sound of Thunder and Pulse are impressive sellers in the Live album category. Those figures do not account for VHS / DVD sales that will be listed separately.
Once again, the big 3 takes over the largest part of sales from those packages. The last live album Is There Anybody Out There? has lower sales, but 100% of them come from The Wall album which boosts it in a big way. From those live sets alone the 1979 LP records nearly 6 million sales.
