CSPC: Simon & Garfunkel 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.

Already immense sellers in pure album sales, Simon & Garfunkel‘s albums also powered an outstanding amount of compilations and live records. Sounds of Silence, Bookends and Bridge Over Troubled Water have fueled from 18,5 million to 21 million sales of compilations each! Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. and Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme are lower but they are still responsible for a very healthy number of 8 million albums sold each.

I still can’t stand them. They are obnoxious with their pedo song.


This is insane, They released only five albuns, but reached 124 million CSPC! David Bowie for instance, needed to release 27 albums to produce the same numbers.


This websites design is atrocious! I’d offer some tips, but I’m not even sure where to start.



Looks great now!
