The early 70s is really when the band’s popularity decelerated. How Can You Mend a Broken Heart was a huge global hit, selling an impressive 2,22 million units, although it wasn’t even issued in key markets like the UK, Germany, France or Japan.

Then Run To Me was not that big, but still an OK seller. The tough flop of the album Life in a Tin Can was validated on the singles front too with virtually no sales whatsoever.
