Pink Floyd Re-Released on Vinyl

Four of Pink Floyd’s albums have just been re-released on vinyl. Just thought the fans would like to know, if they didn’t already.

No Platinum Albums in United States

There will be no Platinum certified albums in the United States this year, the first time since certification had been established in 1976.

Apparently even Disney’s “Frozen” soundtrack didn’t surpass the one million sales mark in the States, selling only just over 750,000 copies this year because of the popularity of music downloads.

Canada’s Gold and Platinum certification was altered to address this issue in 2008.

Prior to May 2008 Canadian album releases were given Platinum Status when they reached 100,000 sales. But this was reduced to 80,000.

Update : Taylor Swift managed to surpass a million sales with “1989” in the first week of November 2014.
