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.
Both Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Californication provided the biggest boost of their catalog, most notably fueling What Hits?! and Greatest Hits, respectively. The tiny impact of Stadium Arcadium is explained by the absence of video / live releases after it.
