15,000 doesn not seem like very many but I guess if you factor in the unavailability of it in certain areas...... Ü

Since the first week of April Taylor's , The Distance , has sold 5000 copies for a total of 23, 000 . There may be more but this is what has been recorded by USA Today. I don't know if there are more sold, but I believe it to be true. Certainly not thousands but a few thousand more would not surprise me............ sold from vendors/outlets that do not report to soundscan.

So he sold more the week before AI appearance than the week of? That doesn't seem right.

That makes more sense, thanks! I am really surprised that he didn't sell more being that he was seemed sky rocket on amazon, at one point I think his sales increased by 2000 percent (according to movers and shakers). I was hopeful that his sales would have been much better.

It is the download of Seven Mile Breakdown that would most likely be positively affected by the AI appearance. How many people would buy the entire CD is still a question mark as the entire CD is not country.

If you look at the Amazon sales , Barnes and Noble sales etc, the CD has had an uptake in sales. http://taylorconnections.com/topic/71004/47/#new The important numbers are the difference between the same hours on consecutive days. 7:30 AM on one day - 1000 / 7:30 AM on the next day 825 ...... has there been improvement and how much. ( The lower the number the better )

The CD sales at the Grease venues are not counted : they are sent to soundscan, but because Taylor has only been independent for a year, they would not count...... you have to be a recognized for two years to have the sales count on soundscan. That is how I understand the system. I am certainly not an expert in this "stuff".... am learning as I go.


Amazon Movers and Shakers and everyother catagory are tabulated hourly.

Thanks for explaining. I don't know why a sale wouldn't count unless you have been around for at least 2 years. That just seems so wrong. No wonder artist have such a hard time making it as an independent. What a complicated business!
