RoXXXette On The Road entered the charts

RoXXXette On The Road, Roxette’s extremely beautiful tour photo book photographed by Anders Roos was published on 16th June. The book that includes 41 reflections by Per Gessle has 2 editions, a normal and a limited edition version in 300 copies called The Roxers Edition. The latter one is presented in a very cool hard case and includes 16 additional pages vs. the normal edition, plus a print from the book signed by Anders Roos and the book itself is signed by Per in silver.

The book entered the charts and it’s not even a week ago since it’s out. The positions show high interest in both editions, even if The Roxers Edition is not listed at too many selling points. Let’s see the actual chart positions!

Bokus

On the daily sales charts we could already see that the limited edition book topped the list (actually, it’s now already out of stock), but now the weekly chart is also available and we can see the normal edition is in the Top5 as well. Woohoo!

RoXXXette On The Road – The Roxers Edition: No. 1 in Culture category
RoXXXette On The Road (normal edition): No. 5 in Culture category

Ginza

RoXXXette On The Road (normal edition): No. 2 among all books!!!

 

Congrats for reaching such nice positions on the charts! Keep it up!

Marie Fredriksson’s biography entered the charts

ktl_3dKärleken till livet, Marie’s biography was published on 7th October. At least this is the date most sites promoted and this is the date till which we could see the countdown on Marie’s Facebook page. However, the publishing company, Piratförlaget still has 14th October on their website. It seems that most shops and webshops already got the book and shipped them to those who ordered it even from abroad. If you ordered it, but haven’t found it in your mailbox yet, keep calm, it will surely reach you one of these days.

The book entered several charts and it’s not even a week ago since it’s out. The positions show high interest in Ms. Fredriksson’s biography. Not only in Sweden, but also around the world. Look at Ginza! Imagine the sales figures if the book is translated into English and other languages! 😉

The Per Gessle Archives and the books entered the charts

The Per Gessle Archives beauty box entered the Swedish album charts at No. 7 and the Swedish Per Gessle book, Texter, Klotter & Funderingar. Den Svenska Delen entered Bokus’s charts in culture category at No. 14. The English book, Songs, Sketches & Reflections. The English Part is not yet on the charts, but let’s see what happens next week.

If you are still hesitating about buying any or all of these 3 gems, don’t think any further! They are so worth being bought! Check them out e.g. at Bengans, Ginza or CDON!

TPGA_No7_PG_book_swe_No14

Per’s opinion about the box’s position on the charts:

Great news. If you count the number of actual CDs sold last week the PG-Archives sold TEN TIMES MORE than the rest of the Top 10 combined. Unfortunately the CD box counts only as ONE CD…. /P.

Congrats!

GT_omslag_131028_rs

The book has just been published and according to Bokus best sellers charts, ”Alla tiders Gyllene Tider” is already the Top 5th best selling book in “culture” category looking at the past week. Taking into consideration that most of us from abroad ordered it at Ginza or Bengans, the book could be No. 1 at Bokus (if we would have ordered our copies there). 😉

Cool result! Congrats!

Gyllene Tider keeps No. 2 position

After 7 weeks at No. 1, then No. 2 on the Swedish album charts, Gyllene Tider’s Dags att tänka på refrängen kept its No. 2 position. This week Lasse Stefanz entered the charts with a new album at No. 1.

Check on Gyllene Tider’s official Facebook site how the guys celebrated their double platinum record at Leifs Lounge on 26th June. They’ve already sold more than 80 000 DATPR records.

Congrats, Fab Five!

Gyllene Tider at No. 2 this week!

After spending 7 weeks at the top of the Swedish album charts, Gyllene Tider’s Dags att tänka på refrängen is No. 2 this week. You can find Black Sabbath’s new album (13) at No. 1.

GT’s 6th studio album can still be No. 1 next week, just think back that Finn 5 fel! was No. 1 for 6 weeks in a row, then it was No. 2 and became No. 1 again for one week. The already gold, platinum and double platinum DATPR record entered the charts on 3rd May, 2013. Gold status in Sweden is for the achievement of 20000 record sales, platinum is for 40000.

As Per informed us last week:

The Official Swedish album chart is based entirely on physical sales (no Spotify, no iTunes etc.), while the official singles chart is the opposite, based on streaming (since there are hardly any physical sales – only vinyl sometimes). Pls note: iTunes has, for some reason, decided to stay away from both official Swedish charts.

 

Fingers crossed for DATPR climbing back to No. 1 next week, but wherever the album is landing, it’s still No. 1 for us!
