That's great news, and accurately placing them at NUMBER ONE!

If they had been beaten out for the top slot by Five Finger Death Punch, I would have lost my lunch.

quoted from the attached article ....

"During the brief moment in the 1990s when it looked like alt-country might break through to the mass audience, the Jayhawks seemed like a sure thing for stardom with their beautiful, evocative melodies and stellar guitar work, and the superb songwriting and harmonies of Mark Olson and Gary Louris. The Jayhawks' first two major-label albums, 1992's Hollywood Town Hall and 1995's Tomorrow the Green Grass, were shining examples of what was good about the new wave of country-rock, and when Louris left the band in late 1995,"


ok, first GL is called Gary Town, now they have him leaving the band! it's all so ridiculous!

ah - good. realistically what do you think these guys can move? one nice thing for them is their fanbase is older and used to actually BUYING records as opposed to stealing them.

It's a conspiracy I tell ya!!!! Yes, someone needs a really good editor ...heck they can get a college student doing their interships to fact-check...that's what I had to do when I was a journalism student...cos' in print media they do not pay their interns...so it's cheap labor.

I hate to speculate, but Mark's last album approaches 50K in sales if I remember Hacktone's comments correctly. I dunno if that breaks down to worldwide or just in the States. The nice thing is, I went to Best Buy and they had a handful of Salvation Blues and some Vagabonds in their racks the week before Ready For The Flood came out.
The Billboard bit, the Letterman gig, these things all help, as does a tour, which is still open-ended, apparently.

Yay! what great news. Do you think the tour adds momentum to this? Press every day and maybe people going to the shows and buying the record?
I wonder how this is picked.. buzz or record sales, or an editor's thoughts?

When I have some time I would like to sit and go through and listen to the others to see what kind of top ten club they are in. I have not heard of any of the other names .

I'm not familiar with the Heatseekers chart. What puts an album on this one as opposed to, say, the Tastemakers chart?

Surely the Mall Cop Association of America helped put that one up top. It's a conspiracy!

I'd be amazed and similarly overjoyed if Salvation Blues sold 50,000. Nowadays, that's a ton of records for a record like that. Certainly DESERVED to sell that many plus more... along with Vagabonds.
