Queen's "Greatest Hits" biggest selling album in UK history


Queen was crowned with the best-selling album of all time title. The Associated Press reports the Official U-K Charts Company said Queen’s Greatest Hits record has sold more than five point four million copies in Britain since its release in 1981. And that is more that any other album. The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band came in second selling four point eight million copies followed by Oasis’ 1995 album, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? with four point three million sold. Queen also took the number seven spot with their Greatest Hits II record. Albums by Dire Straits, ABBA, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson and Madonna fell in the top 10 on the list which was compiled by checking more than a half-centuries worth of sales figures.

Two releases by Queen in the top 10? Interesting.
