CSPC: Barbra Streisand Popularity Analysis

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 Way We Were isn’t among Streisand‘s Top 5 selling studio albums. Its run was stopped too early with the competitive compilation Greatest Hits Vol 2. The album is huge though as it is responsible for sales of more than 10 million best of and live records!

Naturally, Guilty, A Star Is Born, Songbird, People and Funny Girl all boosted sales of plenty of compilations too. While some of them aren’t strong sellers in pure album sales, they are highly valuable additions to Streisand‘s catalog.

HI MDJ, can you tell us how many physical singles did she sell in USA?
She only has 7.5 millilon units certified on RIAA.

Hi MJD, why didn’t you count Funny Girl (1964) and Nuts as Barbra albums but you did countThe Main Event?
