Got some sails.

Umma Gumma- 1 million
Atom Heart Mother- 5 million
Meddle- 2 million
Obscured by clouds- 5 million
Dark side Of the Moon- 15 millions
Wish You were Here- 6 million
Animals- 4 million
The Wall- 23 million
The Final Cut- 2 million
A Momentery Lapse Of reason- 3 million
The Division Bell- 3 million

Some of these i doubt (OBC) but the site http://www.angelfire.com said that these figures were correct so i'll go with it for the time being.

I believe the sales figures on http://www.riaa.org are for the USA only not worldwide
