Regarding The OCC's Friday July 17th Article, about 50 Queen Chart Facts:

The Article gives Queen's 'Greatest Hits' 6,370,000 UK Sales. However, in 2006, The OCC allowed 626,000 Sales, to
be added to it from 2 other Queen releases. (560,000 - 'The Platinum Collection' - 2000, 66,000 - 'Greatest Hits I
& II - 1994). If you remove, those 'Enhanced Sales', it has really sold around 5,744,000. It would still be the UK's
Best Selling Album. However, 'ABBA Gold' is 2nd, with an estimated 5,726,000 UK Sales. There are really only about
18,000 UK Sales, between them. (To W/E 23rd July 2020). The OCC never mention, that 626,000 UK Sales, of the
1981 Queen 'Greatest Hits' Album, are from 2 other Queen releases...

Note -- For 'ABBA Gold', I'm using the estimated 5,721,000 Sales from this Thread - Sunday July 5th. Then, I've
added in a combined Total of 5,000 UK Sales, for these Weeks - W/E 16th July and W/E 23rd July.

http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/index.php?s...20&start=20

The OCC say that, Queen's 'Greatest Hits II', has sold 4,070,000, in the UK. That makes it the UK's 10th Best Selling Album.
If you remove its 'Enhanced Sales', then that 1991 Album has 3,440,000 UK Sales. Which makes it fall to 16th place, in the
List of the UK's Top 60 Best Selling Albums...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-..._United_Kingdom

The fact, that 'Greatest Hits I' and 'Greatest Hits II', were given 626,000 'Enhanced Sales', (each), in 2006, was confirmed by
Alan Jones, in 'Music Week', in September 2009. ('Greatest Hits III' - 1999, was also given 560,000 Sales from 'The Platinum
Collection')...

rotf.gif LOL. Don't think I've laughed as much in all my life. Freddie had more talent in his little finger nail than GaGa has ever had or will ever have and that comes from me who quite likes her music.

Gaga wouldn't even have her name if it wasn't for Queen! She named herself after one of their songs.

Lady Gaga wouldn't approve

And what does the fact that she used a Queen song to build her stage name have to do with the fact that she's more talented than all of them put together? No correlation at all.

There is always confusion around the actual sales of the original greatest hits as I thought I read somewhere ut was close to 7 million sales.

The only one of these facts I found particularly surprising was:
QUOTE
Queen are the only act in Official Chart history to do the Official Chart Double with two greatest hits collections.
