File this under, WHAT?
In this weeks Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, Elton's Greatest Hits 1970-2002 leaps from #155 (where it usually hovers) to #57!! It was also awarded the PS (PaceSetter) Award for the week, which is the album with the largest % sales gain for the week on the entire chart.
I guess it is not that surprising given that he is on tour in several US states playing All The Hits and he is coming back to Vegas in April with TV commercials playing on LA TV stations, so I guess interest has increased enough to push this compilation to its highest position in a VERY long time!
For a little history, the album peaked at #12 and has been on this chart a total of 139 weeks.
