Hi, I'm looking for the best selling UK albums chart from 1988 and 1995 with sales estimates. I know someone has done it before but I can't find it anywhere. I'm sure there was a top 100 list or if there's any more like a top 200 that would be amazing, thanks!

I'm sure Kylie's first album shifted about 2.1 million in total. At the time, it was the best selling album for a debut artist.

I'm shocked Robson & Jerome were best selling albums and singles in 1984. They were a terrible act; very little talent and dreary cover versions who vanished into obscurity pretty quickly thankfully.

I'm more shocked to discover that they were only in their early 30s in 1995!

Jerome is currently in Game Of Thrones so he's pretty high on the radar still nowadays biggrin.gif

I'm specifically looking for sales for two Cher albums. The 1987 album titled Cher and the 1995 album It's a Mans World. Another site has them down for 200k and 225k respectively but I thought that was too high. They both went Gold and I know It's a Mans World sold 101k in 1996 but that's all the sales information I can find. Any help would be much appreciated!
