I follow the album chart regularly and fully expected week 3 sparks would probably fall further .... but! The mid week chart today has them climbing!!!' They are at 47 currently. Wasn't expecting that !!! [/code]

The tour has most likely influenced some purchases - hopefully London for 2 nights will at least keep the sales responsibly strong - I bought an extra copy of the autographed CD in Manchester

Let's hope they will gain af few more places with the London gigs coming!
The first week I think was thanks to the fans (and the BMG Marketing) but obviously other people are starting to buy it now, and that is great news.

One can only speculate how huge this album would of sold as a follow up to Indiscreet instead of Big Beat..

Not sure what the other 56 are all about but I guess 99% are not a touch on Hippo.

Easy. I like Hippo. But it is not as good as Big Beat. Better than Balls, I would say, but not as good as the last couple of records they made. Better marketing, yes. Great cover. And the fact that fewer and fewer people are buying records. So as long as we old fans are alive they will sell comparatively many.
