RPO album is currently at number 30 in the UK sales chart. It’s not in the main top 100 album charts.

Let’s hope that as the year progresses we’ll see that gold certification. Also be great to see the 50th anniversary celebrations come to fruition with something special in the future :).

An update on the UK Sales Chart. The RPO album is at 51. I am looking forward to seeing how the long delayed Vinyl release impacts the chart.

I do not get why it's on the "classical" chart. OK, so Richard wrote new orchestral segues and an overture for it. That doesn't make it a classical album. It's a pop album.

By that measure, almost every Alan Parsons Project ever made should have been considered classical, since most of those used an orchestra too.
