A MUSICAL GAME: Designed to NOT piss you off...

Recommended Posts

OK...

Arista has a dozen albums in their catalog called:

"DEFINITIVE COLLECTION"

I'm going to list the 12 names in alphabetical order...

You're going to rank them from 1 to 12 in the order you think they have sold...

As a tie-breaker, put in parentheses next to the artists name what you think the album has sold (to the closest thousand.)

As a guide I will give you THIS hint...

the #1 title in this group has sold 298k

the #12 title in this group has sold about 14k

Enjoy...

(one entry per person, and some time next week I will share the answer with you. The winner will receive a prize from the Capitol Records catalog smile )

Here are your 12 "Definitive Collection" entries:

AIR SUPPLY

BAY CITY ROLLERS

BOFILL*ANGELA

CARMEN*ERIC

KASHIF

KROKUS

LORBER*JEFF

ORLANDO*TONY & DAWN

PARSONS*ALAN PROJECT

PARTRIDGE FAMILY

REED*LOU

WARWICK*DIONNE

Good Luck!

Hmmm, if it's guaranteed NOT to piss me off, EC would be number one, but I think Marc was being sarcastic, so I'll say.....

1) Tony Orlando and Dawn

2) Alan Parsons Project

3) Dionne Warwick

4) Air Supply

5) Partridge Family

6) Eric Carmen

7) Bay City Rollers

8) Krokus

9) Lou Reed

10) Angela Bofill

11) Kashif

12) Jeff Lorber

....and to agree with Kirk, I have bought Eric's version three times. Once for myself, once for one of my daughter's, and once for a friend. Don't have any of the others.

Not sure about the other 11 albums, but I'm guessing Eric's sold fairly well, as it had his recent hits (Hungry Eyes, Make Me Lose Control), which weren't available via CD elsewhere (except the former on a soundtrack).....
