After the mini climb last wee sparks have now taken A huge tumble and are now at 99! Seems likely it's now its last week in the top 100 ( for now )

Does anyone know if album sales at the gigs count towards the chart position, or do they only include sales online and from shops? If there was a chart for cassette sales, I bet Hippopotamus would be at number one given the lack of competition!

I looked this up and apparently music sold at gigs can count towards the album chart. So its possible those sales are being counted!
there is actually a cassette chart but I don't think its actually published anywhere. pretty sure Sparks could have been no.1 on that chart when the album was out

Thanks for checking and for the good news! I'm surprised there's a chart for cassettes!

I could not believe it that they actually sold cassettes at the concert. Who will buy that? Hm, I nearly did but went for vinyl.
