This is the daily number’s thread. Please post them as you find them.
Disclaimer: We do not have access to the full SoundScan stats each week. We are dependent on leaks from a variety of sources. The primary source of these leaks is Brian at Idol Chatter. He can have up to 3 updates a week for albums alone. The first set of numbers features those albums in the top 200 and some Nashville based artists. The second release features albums in the top 200 for the year and perhaps more Nashville based artists. The final release may include some special requests he gets from his users. At no point should anybody conclude that albums that are not listed sold fewer albums than the least selling album listed. All that one can conclude is that the album is not likely in the top 200 for the week or the year (Brian is human and does make the odd mistake which he later fixes). We have seen several times that the third release of special request numbers features albums that have sold more than the least selling album listed. We are grateful for any numbers we can get.
