In today's UK Album Chart -- W/E 7th September 2017 - 'ABBA Gold' rises from No.89 to No.76.

It sold about 1,370 copies to reach No.76.

1)... It becomes the 1st Album to reach 800 Top 100 Weeks, in the UK. (32 more Weeks and it will
have been in the UK Top 100 for 16 Years).

2)... It has spent 526 Weeks in the UK Top 75. That is the 2nd most Weeks by any Album.

ALBUMS WITH THE MOST UK TOP 75 WEEKS

A)... Legend -- Bob Marley & The Wailers -- 545 Weeks
B)... ABBA Gold -- ABBA -- 526 Weeks
C)... Greatest Hits (One) -- Queen -- 518 Weeks @@@

@@@ = The OCC say 524 Top 75 Weeks, for the Queen Compilation.
They give it 7 Weeks too many. They include the 7 Top 75 Weeks of
a Double CD, (Greatest Hits I & II), from 1994. That was a No.37 Hit,
but its 7 Top 75 Weeks should not be included in the Chart Run of the
1981 Greatest Hits Album. So, we remove 7 Weeks from The OCC Total
= 517 Weeks. Then we add in a No.73 Week, for W/E 9th October 1982
= 518 Weeks. For some reason, The OCC miss out that 1982 No.73 Position.

The 7 Top 75 Positions - 1994 Double CD - that The OCC wrongly include with Queen's
Greatest Hits (One), are:

W/E 19th November 1994 37-40-50-43-40-39-44

3)... FURTHER TOP 100 WEEKS -- THAT THE OCC DO NOT HAVE

The UK Album Chart has been a Top 100 for many Years. This includes 12th September 1992
to February 5th 1994. However, The OCC only have Top 75's for that, (1992 to 1994), period.

A)... The OCC give Greatest Hits (One) by Queen, 788 Top 100 Weeks. That is
wrong. You have to remove the 7 Top 100 Weeks of the 1994 Double CD. That
gives 781 Weeks. Then you add in the No.73 Top 100 Week that they miss out,
from October 1982. That gives 782 Weeks. So, that is its real Top 100 Weeks,
from the Charts that The OCC have. The Queen Album loses 32 Top 100 Weeks
from September 1992 to W/E 5th February 1994, as The OCC only has Top 75's.
So, that's 782 Weeks + 32 = 814 Top 100 Weeks. So, the Queen Album was really
the 1st UK Album to reach 800 Top 100 Weeks, 14 Weeks ago. But, The OCC don't
have 32 of its Top 100 Positions.....

B)... They, (OCC), give 'Legend' 787 Top 100 Weeks. However, they miss out 19 of
its Top 100 Positions, from 1993, when they only have Top 75's. Plus 2 further Top
100 Positions from January 1994. That's 21 Top 100 Positions, that 'Legend' loses.
It should really have 808 Top 100 Weeks, which means that it too reached 800 UK
Top 100 Weeks before 'ABBA Gold'.

C)... ABBA Gold is really on 802 Top 100 Weeks. The OCC only have Top 75's for 2
Weeks when it was at No.77 - W/E 22nd May 1993 and W/E 5th February 1994.

With Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift both having secured no.1 singles after long waits,I think The Who are now back as the most well known chart act never to have a no.1.

Good evening Mr Bond. Where have you been hiding?

I suspect that The Who's fame is greater than Bieber's and definitely greater than Swift's when all age groups are taken into account.

Best not to talk about that travesty. We should also do our best to forget that the only Depeche Mode song to make the top there was a terrible cover by The Saturdays sad.gif

Yes probably The Who do have the biggest overall fan base.
I have been something of a silent watcher here lately but just decided to post.
