Full Length related record Sales – Part 2 – Global compilations #2
Greatest Hits 1970-2002 was the first comprehensive and global compilation of John‘s career. Unsurprisingly, it became a solid catalog seller and isn’t closer to 10 million only because it was replaced a few years later by Rocket Man. These packages, as well as Diamonds, are similar which is visible with the same patterns of distribution of sales. Albums Elton John, Honky Château and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road are the main providers of appeal of all those compilations. We can see how prolific John‘s career has been since even his biggest albums provide way less than 20% of his best of albums’ attractiveness.
