Postby michaelk » Sun Jun 10, 2007 2:08 pm

I'm not up on the statistics of his album entries. How does this compare to previous entries?

I'm not sure, but I think Chaos peaked at no. 8. Flaming Pie was no. 1, I believe. As for Driving Rain, I don't think he made the top ten.

Is this week's chart already published?

Have to say that I didn't even NOTICE that 'Driving Rain' had come out back in '01. Which was a first for me. I was still getting over the fact that a younger flatmate had thought that Beatles '1' was their debut album. Can you imagine what a headf*ck that was?!! Great one though. He REALLY DID think that. I was torn between thinking he was the ultimate idiot and wishing I could see the world through his eyes...

Yeah, no kidding. It would be a real treat "discovering" The Beatles for the first time. The back catalogue would make your head spin. 8)

That was how the converastion started. I came home one night and he was drunk and had just bought it and was just saying 'The Beatles are just amazing' and I was going 'Yeah they are aren't they?' but all the while he was in a world where this was their debut album and I was in the 'regular' world where it's quite clear that it's a compilation. Long after this, I asked 'Well didn't you read the sleeve?' But he thought the whole thing was an ironic mock-up.

Even more enjoyable was the time when another friend who was more into The Smiths than anything else, picked up Mark Shipper's 'Paperback Writer' and proceeded NOT to realise it was a spoof. He was reading it intently in the corner while the rest of us (in a band at the time) worked on home studio stuff. On day four he said 'I can't believe they called their first album 'We're Gonna Change The Face of Pop Music Forever'

The rest of us looked at each other and tried to sense his situation but he was in a parallel universe of exquisite ignorance.

He was, of course, gutted by the reality we revealed and as far as I know has developed no further interest in The Beatles.

To answer an earlier question, yes, the British charts come out on Sunday. In the U.S., Billboard generally posts its new charts on Wednesday, I believe. The obsessive-compulsive among us can follow sales figures on the Hits Daily Double site, which posts a weekly album sales chart that starts building on Monday as the first sales reports trickle in, and is regularly updated till it's complete sometime Tuesday afternoon. If you go to it now (Sunday), you'll see that last week's chart is still up. It will be replaced by the new one that's starting to build on Monday:

#5 in UK is pretty nice, and that's without the Starbucks sales, right? So maybe it would have been a bit higher if that snafu hadn't happened.
