Roger Waters’ Us + Them UK Chart position has come in at quite a surprising position this week as it entered the UK charts.
The recording was made available in visual formats including bluray, DVD and 4k streaming. The audio was also made available as MP3, music streaming, vinyl and CD. Grab a copy.
The UK album charts has Us+Them in a number 9 in its debut week. You may recall that the drummer’s album came in at number five a couple of weeks ago. It is anyone’s guess as to what Roger will think about that!
Personally, I bought the bluray as I wanted to watch the concert as it was a visually stunning as it was musically. Really fantastic show, I was lucky enough to see it in Liverpool. I didn’t buy the CD or vinyl. Perhaps many others did this so, as far as I know, that wouldn’t therefore be counted in the UK Album charts.
Amazon had it as number 1 best selling music bluray of crouse which validates the theory that more people want to see it rather than hear it.
