BROTHERS IN ARMS - DIRE STRAITS (1985)

As Dire Straits Brothers In Arms Album is a Re-Entry at No.8, I've prepared this Chart Trivia.

1)... It is its 66th Week in the UK Top 10 - the 9th most by an Artist Album & the 16th most by any Album.
(Including Film Soundtracks & Stage Cast Albums).

2)... The W/E 14th February 2015 will be its first Top 10 entry since W/E 23rd August 1986, when it was at No.7.

3)... It was last in the Top 5 on W/E 21st June 1986, when it was at No.5.

4)... As far as I can see, it was last in the Top 20 on W/E 25th June 1988, when it was at No.13.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

BOB DYLAN - As 'Shadows In The Night' is his 8th UK No.1 Album, & his 25th Week at No.1 in the UK Album Chart,
I have 'created' these various Lists to show where this places him in the All Time Acts, USA Acts, & Male Solo Acts.

The Joey Bada$$ album is an example of stylisation being important - 'B4.DA.SS' is a rather dodgy title laugh.gif (not the mention the fact that it destroys the point of the title, which is pronounced 'before da money').
