Now what?! has been released in a number of countries today, April 26, and is charting very well on Amazon.de. At the time of this writing (23:43 CEST) the limited edition is at #2 in overall album chart (with only a Bravo magazine compilation sneaking ahead) and #1 in ‘Hard Rock’, ‘Rock’, and ‘Limited Edition’ categories. MP3 dowload is #1 in ‘MP3 Albums‘ category, and regular CD is #50 in ‘Music’, #2 in ‘Hard Rock’ and #13 in ‘Rock’. The Hard Rock Top 20 chart is absolutely dominated by Deep Purple with six entries (sic!): two editions of the new album at #1 and #2, Rapture of the Deep at #8, 30: Very Best of compilation at #9, self-titled 1969 album at #16, and Made in Japan at #19. Add there Whitesnake’s Made in Japan at #6, and Purple family domination is utterly absolute. Like Bayern München this season
Even knowing that Amazon charts are a feeble thing and change on an hourly basis, this leaves us here at the THS ivory towers with warm and fuzzy feeling.
Well done, gents!
