V2 :

YTD Sales : Please read these guidelines before you request sales estimates, it makes my task a lot easier.

1. Be specific - please name the artist and title for each entry you'd like an estimate for.
2. I log sales for all albums that have charted this year, but only update those that have sold enough to reach my 200 position tracking range
3. If an album isn't in the current Top 100, I won't be able to update its sales until Tues. Also, please don't ask about ex-T100 albums too often - once a month at most)
4. Remember to check the thread before requesting estimates - they may already have been answered. Also, no more than half-a-dozen requests at a time, thanks.
5. Please note my figures are combined sales & streams, and since I have no way of separating them, I cannot provide a split.
6. While I am no longer estimating singles sales, I can provide YTD singles positions from C+, and I am still maintaining my sales archive based on published figures (PM me if you want to see it)

Thank you.

It's a perfect example of how streaming benefits "sales" of best of albums, especially heritage acts. Streaming is the main reason why the album chart is full of Best Of or Greatest Hits albums.

But shouldn't streams go to parent albums, rather than GH ones?

they should go to the album you're streaming it from... and it shouldn't count for the album charts if you stream from a playlist

Playlists are the bane of the charts, nowadays...

and will never understand how you search for Elton John - Sleeping with the Past album, you stream Sacrifice, but that counts for his Diamonds Greatest Hits... makes zero sense to me...

If the track is on both a parent album and a best of / Greatest Hits album then the stream counts towards both albums. If the track features on more than one Greatest Hits / Best Of type album the stream will count towards the sale of either the album with the highest sale (I read that as meaning paid for sales) for that week or a hits album nominated in advance by the label.

Yup. The heritage acts that attract the most streams are usually the same acts that have a greatest hits album in the top 40. Unless the chart rules change on how streams are allocated to an album (or unless a form of ACR is introduced for album streams) then those same albums are likely to be hanging around the charts for years to come.

To be fair, those are classics that've been charting since before even CD's were invented, let alone streaming... wink.gif

sure but now they're charting cos of the wrong reasons
ABBA-Gold should chart if people stream that album, not if people stream songs from the parent studio album and still count for Gold or if they listen to random ABBA tracks on playlists
