'An Afternoon In The Garden' drops from #156 to #176 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart for w/e 10th December, 2011.
'It's Christmas Time' drops from #78 to #116 on the Top 200 Album Chart and drops from #10 to #24 on the Catalog Album Chart.
'Elvis Christmas' drops from #96 to #107 on the Top 200 Album Chart and drops from #16 to #18 on the Catalog Album Chart. It also drops from #24 to #25 on the Holiday Album Chart.
Although these latest placings appear disappointing in fact the opposite is the case.... 'An Afternoon In The Garden' sold 4154 copies last week and this week sold 7492 copies (the highest weekly sales tally since entering the Catalog Album Chart).
'Elvis Christmas' sold 6520 copies last week and this week sold 12,037 copies.
'Its Christmas Time' sold 8393 copies last week and this week sold 11,491 copies. During heavy sales periods e.g. Christmas, Catalog Albums will always fare less well chart wise as newer albums will take precedence with shoppers. However, sales of the Catalog Albums will also rise due to their exposure to more customers online and in store as has happened this week.
