Does anyone know what time today purchases count towards the charts until?
Might send the other half into town to see if the vinyl is anywhere. I don't think Banquet have stock so might cancel.
With a studio album no, Deep Sea Skiving peaked the highest at #8. However, the ‘88 greatest hits was top 3 and hung around.
Even going top 20 would be a great feat for them. Even many of their classic era albums couldn't do that.
You can't compare the albums charts today with the charts back in the day. No-one buys or listens to full artist albums anymore; that's why it's easy for legacy acts like Bananarama to chart well.
Sure, it's nice to see them on the charts again, but it doesn't mean they're as popular as a #22 album was back in the 80s. They probably won't last a second week inside the top 100.
