Rush's The Spirit Of Radio: Greatest Hits 1974-1987 compilation re-enters the Billboard Top 200

Thu, May 31, 2012@9:25AM | comments removed/disabled

Rush's 2003 compilation The Spirit Of Radio: Greatest Hits 1974-1987 has re-entered the Billboard Top 200 album chart at #161 for the week of June 9th. It had peaked at #62 on the chart back in 2003 when it was released and remained in the top 200 for 7 weeks. My guess is that the surge in sales is likely due to a carry-over effect from pre-orders of the Clockwork Angels album, where people are ordering the compilation along with the new album. Whatever the reason, it's nice to see. Clockwork Angels releases a week from next Tuesday on June 12th in North America. It's expected that pre-orders of the album should propel it into at least the top 5 on the Billboard 200 for the week of its release, if not higher. Thanks to John at for the heads up.
