Wasn't BoRhap's initial charting position, 26 in the UK?

It's a live album folks, they are never big hits on the charts regardless of the artist. #20 is nothing to hang their heads over.

Wow! # 20 is pretty good is it not?! Sure seems so to me! When was the last time they had a live release do that well? Or any release for that matter? Perhaps "The Platinum Collection: Greatest Hits I, II, & III"?

It's good, IMHO. Milton was at 20 as well.

It's Ok I think ! I'm sure the DVD will go to number 1 (if they count the simple and the 2 DVD set as one release)

I found this about BoRhap and had never heard of this before! - "Released on October 31, 1975, “Bohemian Rhapsody” entered the U.K. chart the following week at number 47"

Whoa...

Heh, so we're comparing QRM to Bohemian Rhapsody now? ;)

Queen Rocks entered at 7, GHIII entered at 5, Platinum (2002 reissue) entered at 2, and Queen On Fire entered at 20.

Incidentally, their entry dates were the peak positions for those albums, and by the second week they had fallen two or three spots.

I found that info here: http://forums.queenonline.com/viewtopic.php?p=432677. It's a pretty good read, if you're into chart placements and all that...

Up here in Finland the DVD has entered the charts at #4. Sadly, the album is not on top40. (Well, who buys live CD's anyway?)

How about other countries?
