It is a pleasant surprise, especially coming from an album that was released 46 years ago. Summer nostalgia maybe?

The Carpenters were featured in a "Rock Legends" episode last week on AXS TV, maybe they got a spike from some old school rockers who decided to give their music another listen?

There could be PBS stations running pledge drives and the CLOSE TO YOU documentary. That always fuels interest in those local markets. If one or more is happening in a big city, that's enough to register on the charts.

It’s the price! ITunes lowered it to only $4.99, so it’s a really good deal for those who don’t already own 4 or 5 copies........ it looks like UMG lowered the price on lots of greatest hits/best of titles to $4.99.

Top 40 for “Christmas Portrait: Special Edition” on iTunes in the US and Top 100 in Canada! Seriously, by now, it has to be a Christmas Classic by any standard and be up there with Elvis’s Christmas, the Beach Boys Christmas and Bing Crosby’s Christmas albums!

I could not find any version of CP in my local Target. If its a trend all over the country, that's not good for chart action. Weird.

They aren’t carrying it in store this year. I’ve looked several times too. Haven’t looked at Barnes & Nobel yet. Has anyone else seen it in any stores this year? Maybe just iTunes.
