Full Length related records Sales – Summary
Here is the most underestimated indicator of an album’s success – the amount of compilation sales of all kinds it generated. Due to the dependency of sales of the original studio albums on these releases, they are a key piece of the jigsaw.
The Colour and the Shape is responsible for as many as 2,3 million sales of compilations in every kind, a huge number for an album that sold less than 5 million units by itself. As Greatest Hits is an immense catalog seller, this tally will continue to grow.
