Wow! I'm no expert but I'd say 21 in the first week is a hell of great debut! Thanks for the info!

Or 32, whichever. This is a little hard to understand :-P

It's not in the top 200 for August 28:

Maybe that is for 2 weeks ago rather than one though.

Yes,it should debut somewhere around number 50.The chart online right now is for two weeks ago.I'm quite pleased it sold so well it's first week.There really wasn't a lot of promotion for it,more word of mouth than anything.

The official position will be know tomorrow, Billboard will post the chart on Thursday and the issue date for this week is September 04.

PS: This week the Greatest Hits album (from 1992) is #200 on the Billboard Comprehensive Albums. This chart is the old Billboard chart pre-1991 when ALL the albums were on chart, new, old titles, etc...
So, the Greatest Hits album was No. 200 on the Soundscan Top 200 and this year spent 4 weeks there. The album is #22 on the Pop Catalog Chart.
