The Rolling Stones' Blue & Lonesome claims Number 1 on this week's Official Albums Chart with massive opening week sales

Congratulations to The Rolling Stones, who claim this week’s Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart with their latest album Blue & Lonesome – their first new studio album to hit the top spot in more than 20 years.

The iconic band’s first studio record in more than a decade shifted a massive 106,000 combined sales to claim the top spot – the second-highest opening sales week for an album this year, behind David Bowie’s Blackstar, which logged 146,000 sales in its first week back in January.

The Rolling Stones commented: “We are absolutely delighted with the success of Blue & Lonesome in the UK and around the world.”

From Music Week:
Commentary by, Alan Jones


Their first album comprised entirely of covers, their first studio album in 11 years and their 23rd studio album in all, Blue & Lonesome makes a resounding debut atop the chart for The Rolling Stones, with first week sales of 105,830, the highest for any artist album since David Bowie's Blackstar opened 47 weeks ago on sales of 146,168 in the wake of his death.

Making a much bigger bang than their last studio album, A Bigger Bang - which debuted and peaked at No.2 in 2005 on sales of 43,466, just 11 fewer than the tally with which James Blunt's Back To Bedlam topped the list that week - Blue & Lonesome sold more copies last week than any Rolling Stones album in any week in the 21st century, surpassing the 104,256 copies that compilation Forty Licks shifted at No.11 in the week before Christmas in 2002.

Blue & Lonesome is The Rolling Stones' 11th No.1 album, and their first new one since Voodoo Lounge, which sold 25,162 copies when debuting atop the chart in 1994, although 1972 chart-topper Exile On Main Street returned to No.1 on reissue in 2010. Several Rolling Stones compilations have sold multi-platinum quantities - the aforementioned Forty Licks, for example, has sold 1,135,934 copies since its release a little over 14 years ago - but none of them have reached No.1, their tally comprising 10 studio albums plus the 1970 live set, Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! The Beatles are the only group to have more No.1 studio albums, with 11.

When The Rolling Stones' eponymous debut album topped the chart in 1964, they were the second youngest vocal group (and the third youngest group of all, behind the Shadows and The Beatles) to have a No.1. With the coronation of Blue & Lonesome - which consists entirely of covers of blues standards, including songs from Jimmy Reed and Willie Dixon, both of whom also had tunes on that very first Rolling Stones album - they become the oldest. With an average age of 72 (Mick Jagger is 73, Keith Richards is 72, Charlie Watts is 75 and Ronnie Wood is 69), they far surpass the previous record of 64 set by Black Sabbath when their 19th studio album 13 topped the chart in 2013. Prior to that, the record was held by The Eagles, who averaged 59 when they had their one and only No.1 album with Long Road Out Of Eden in 2007. Black Sabbath also held the record for a group of having a No.1 album furthest into their recording career, with 13 coming some 43 years after their eponymous 1970 debut - but The Rolling Stones shatter that too, with more than 52 years elapsing since they first burst onto the album scene.

In the top five for the fifth time in a row since its release, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe's Together spends a third week at its peak position of No.2, and records its best sale yet, of 71,042 copies.

No.1 for the past fortnight, Little Mix's Glory Days dips to No.3 (56,513 sales).

According to Music Week, B&L is the Stones' 11th UK #1 album while for the Official Chart is their 12th including the re-issue of Exile on 2010 (for Music Week it was a re-entry at #1 not a new one)

Congrats to the Rolling Stones for having #1 albums 54 years into their existence. Yes, there have been people who have had #1 albums decades into their careers, but nobody has stayed as relevant as the Rolling Stones.

To put this accomplishment into perspective, the current “it" artists of the moment like Bruno Mars,The Weekend, Taylor Swift etc, would have to still be having #1 albums in the year 2070 while playing to stadiums of people all over the world to equal what the Stones have done...I’m willing to bet that isn’t going to happen.

Again, hats off to the Rolling Stones...Enjoy them now while you can and understand that there will never be another Rolling Stones.

More than the #1 spot, this is really impressive!

Mixed emotions since they knocked it off in "3 days" instead of toiling the usual 3+ months... at the end of the day it's quality (and marketing) more than quantity that makes for good sales.
