Traveling Wilburys Chart Positions

The Traveling Wilburys Collection is a runaway hit with music fans this summer.

Following its number one positions on the UK album chart, IRMA album chart, Australian album chart, Amazon's pre-order and sales list, and Apple's iTunes, the collection debuted at number nine and number one on the Billboard album and digital album charts, respectively.

This is an amazing accomplishment considering that the Deluxe edition was out of stock on nearly every major online distributor's website (e.g. Amazon, Best Buy, etc.) just one day after its release, and had very limited retail distribution (read no Starbucks displays). What's even more amazing is that this is a three-disc collection.

Although, you must admit, selling music at Starbucks is an excellent idea that has worked well for Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, and the Police, among others. How else can you get music in front of over 40 million customers every week?

I hope they make more Deluxe versions. I still can't find one copy, except on ebay. How many people can spend $99?

The wilburys are now at number 2 during its second week on the UK chart - holding steady...

Mccartney is only on the US album chart. His new album doesn't even chart in the UK. Meanwhile, the Wilburys are number one or in the top 10 on nearly every album chart in the world.

Plus, they debuted at number 1 on the United World Chart, which tracks physical, digital sales and airplay on all the charts to determine the most popular music in the world.

This proves two things:
1. Wilburys rule!
2. Starbucks is a great marketing gimmick that sells anything

The Wilburys have sold 543,000 copies after only three weeks. That's 1.62 miilion discs total.

Go Wilburys!
