No Protection selling 653,000?!!!! Surely that can't be anywhere near correct? I'd have thought it was nearer 653 copies than 653,000!

More likely 653k are the sales of Protection and No Protection combined.

That does sound more feasible, depending on how strong a seller Protection has been as a catalogue seller. Even then I'm finding it difficult to believe as I think Protection sold less than 300K in the 90s.

That Elton John + PNAU remix album is seriously good/unappreciated!

The album (Protection/No Protection) is showing as 2 x Platinum (600k sales) on the BPI certification database https://www.bpi.co.uk/award/9216-2279-2

However that 2 x Platinum award is dated 22 July 2013, which is the date that automatic certifications were introduced. The album (as Protection) had previously been certified Platinum in March 1996 https://www.bpi.co.uk/award/5231-2279-2

Unless there really has been a lot of sales under the radar then I wonder if there's an OCC database error here with possible double counting of sales of No Protection.

BPI gives the same release date of 26/9/94.
So I would say this is the combined total sales.
So 653,000 in total and not 653,00 + 300,000.

Shame on them for not mentioning Gaga's The Remix, which was an absolute success in the UK and reached peak #3, selling almost 200k. I'm not mistaken, it's the best-selling remix album of the past decade in the UK & all over the world - and one of the best-selling remix albums in history.

Bit of a messy article as usual,
sure that's the total for Protection/No Protection, Massive Attack are big catalogue sellers, their first 3 albums are all Double Platinum even if Blue Lines their debut was only one week in the low top 20


when I think of remix Albums, also the first that comes to mind is Gaga's so it's weird they skipped it

is the Beatles really a Remix album? it's more like a sorta Mash-up album to me biggrin.gif

The OCC did say,
Produced by George Martin and his son Giles, Love remixed Beatles classics - including Eleanor Rigby, Strawberry Fields Forever and a mashup of Blackbird/Yesterday - for a Cirque du Soleil Vegas show of the same name.

Not all remixes have to be dance bangers?

I see what you mean, but I guess technically it has been "re-mixed"

I don't think that quite the same as a remix album though - I wouldn't count the track-by-track remixes of Beatles albums either. Love just about counts as one because there's some reinterpretation, not just trying to improve the sound quality.

I see the barrell-scraping Stone Roses remix album is being reissued on vinyl. *contains excitement*.
