ChartWatch: All Over The World Hits New Chart High

#1,129: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! The Official Top 100 Album Chart published earlier today [Friday 17th June] confirmed that ELO's classic compilation "All Over The World" has indeed re-entered the UK Top 10 this week at a best-ever placing of #4 following its CD re-release and stunning debut in 2LP vinyl on Friday 10th June whilst also entering the Official Top 40 Vinyl Chart for the very first time at #30.

"All Over The World" was originally issued back in June 2005 and reached #6 in its first week of release. The twenty [20] track greatest hits package now joins fellow ELO albums "Out Of The Blue" [1977]. "Secret Messages" [1983], "The Very Best Of The Electric Light Orchestra" [1994] and "Alone In the Universe" [2015] in attaining fourth place in the UK album chart.
Five ELO albums have now peaked at #4 in the UK ...
"All Over The World" is joined by "Pure McCartney" at #3 in the chart although, sadly, the Concord re-issue of The Traveling Wilburys Collection has not entered the chart this week.
