UK Album Chart Update #2

#437: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! The latest Official UK Top 100 Album Chart this week sees Jeff Lynne's "Long Wave" dropping to #56 (from #31), "Mr. Blue Sky" now at #85 (down from #42) with "All Over The World" falling from #17 to #38.

The softening in sales of all three albums has continued with the Sony compilation fairing better than both Frontiers releases this last week. This evidently is due to the limited independent distribution network of Frontiers Records versus SonyBMG.

Also of note, both "Long Wave" and "Mr. Blue Sky" appear to have dropped out of the US Billboard Top 200 Album Chart after just the one week.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 28-Oct-2012
