Turning to Crime in the charts

Official UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart Top 40, December 3, 2021

Turning to Crime didn’t make it in the charts as far as its predecessors. But consider this: at any other time such recording would probably be relegated to a bonus disk for some tour edition of a “proper” album. So, not too too bad, all things considered.

    Dr. Bob says:

    Worldwide itunes aggregate peaked at #3 is what stands out to me. Not bad for a purple-ized cover album.

    Georgivs says:

    Very good. It has charted better than pre-Ezrin Morse era albums, which are considered “proper” albums.

  3. 3
    Georgi says:

    Looks good. I like the album. I think that for Christmas time is perfect. You can compare to the other Deep Purple albums that are published on this time of the year. Enjoy the new Deep Purple release.

    That’s good news as it’s a platform for the next album.
    The record company will definitely back up the next album to be a great success.

    In Italia gira allegro tra le radio rock, sembra naturale che i Nostri ogni tanto ci facciano dono di vera Musica suonata con passione e divertimento, grazie Zii!

    George Martin says:

    Can anyone estimate how many actual sales there are worldwide? In other words 50,000 copies, 100,000 copies, 1,000,000 copies etc. Saying it’s # 1 here and #42 there doesn’t really tell you much. Being # 1 in a smaller country might actually be much less in sales than being # 55 in a large country. Also, anyone know how many copies did Whoosh sell? A really great album.

    Wanted this on this page, but not sure where to put it. This occurred today 21 June 2022. This past September I had a below knee amputation of my right leg. I went to my gym earlier today, then I had to go to my GP. Over the past couple of days, I was thinking there goes any dancing in the future. I love going to gigs and moving to music – especially at Purple concerts (I’ve seen them on every tour in New Jersey from 1985 to 2017 before moving to Ireland- wish they would tour here, haven’t seen them since the Hall of Fame Induction in Brooklyn. I figured with the prosthetic, those days are over. I was walking to the GP after the gym, and this song came on my MP3 player. I was wearing headphones. As I was walking I began walking to the music at the beginning and began to dance to the song on the footpath- yes both legs, my whole body and holding only one stick. I was dancing outside my GP’s office until the song was over. I must have been a sight to behold. Thank you Ian, Ian, Roger, Steve, and Don for such great music and making me realise anything is still possible even with a fake leg.
