    I don’t have Beatles 1, and see no reason to ever get it. I already have all the songs on thier albums.

    Yes I’m with you there. I was never a fan of Celine’s but my partner of 19 years is a huge fan and 3 years ago he dragged me along to see her in concert. I was absolutely gobsmacked by her voice. That thing is otherworldly when you hear it live! Since then I’ve found myself playing some of her albums and some of them are quite good, but nothing compares to hearing her live. Just thinking about it gives me goosebumps. Phenomenally gifted singer. I enjoy Falling Into You and A New Day Has Come most of all, although neither of them is perfect.

    I bought Dark Side on release, but sold it within the year.
    The only other one I have heard all the way through is Sgt Pepper’s, which I’ve never owned

    Dark Side of the Moon
    Led Zeppelin IV
    The Beatles - 1. I bought that from a charity shop for 50 pence - I had every track on vinyl, but I was hoping that Love Me Do might be the original single version (sadly it turned out to be the other one, which I already had twice!) I later got Past Masters to plug that important gap!

    I would probably have bought Sgt Pepper at some point, but my wife bought it before we met (and we're still together!)

    I don't think they have ever had a megaselling album in general. Funny when you think about what an institution they are and how big a live draw they have been. You would think at least one of the 68-71 albums would have done big numbers like this

    I expected Sticky Fingers or at least Hot Rocks (1964-1971) to be in the list but i guess i was wrong.
    Also no Queen.

    Just two! The obvious two: Dark Side, and Sgt Pepper.

    A curious fact that I have mentioned before: in the UK, The Dark Side of the Moon is the highest selling album to never top the album charts.

    Eight titles, some multiple copies

    Beatles - sgt pepper x 2
    Beatles - Abbey Road

    Dark Side

    did buy Dirty Dancing on vinyl from a charity shop a while back, but gave it away as the sound quality wasn’t great.

    Other than Stones/Queen there is no Black Album(Metallica) no Brothers In Arms no Nevermind.And no Elton John.
    We recently had successful movies about Queen and Elton.Is there a single person on the planet who believes that a biopic about Alanis Morissette or MeatLoaf would make money?I don't think so :p

    I was a complete naysayer until relatively recently when someone on here (possibly Horsey Ann?) posted a clip of Celine singing in French, & then her version of Jim Steinman's It's All Coming Back To Me Now, and I have to say I was bowled over by how lovely her voice was.

    Since then, if she's been on the radio, I've listened rather than zoned out and much to my surprise, she's recorded some really good stuff. Makes me wonder how many other performers I dismiss and yet would enjoy if only I opened my ears a little bit. :)
