France Best Selling Albums Ever: Update Part 6 (41-21)
#28 – 9,000
Dire Straits – Brothers in Arms (1985) : 2 020 000
For the first time this year since 2011 when the Comprehensive Chart was introduced, Dire Straits all-time classic Brothers In Arms never charted during the entire year. Instead, the compilation Private Investigations had 16 weeks inside the ranking. Brothers In Arms wasn’t dead though as during the entire summer it was featuring well inside the Catalog Chart, just under the main chart, sitting on it for as many as 18 weeks. A 2 million seller since a couple of years, the road continues for this 1985 set.
