I wonder if that list reflects the fact that older people might still buy CDs while youngsters download music?

Bobby Vee blimey.

I'd have thought the only person buying Bobby Vee albums nowadays would be his Mum. Maybe it's a spinoff from Dylan namechecking him in "Chronicles".

Having heard advertised, on the radio this week, the forthcoming virtual concert experience starring Ol' Blue Eyes, I'd have thought it entirely possible to get this whole line up together for Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday bash...( see other thread somewhere on this site)...Uh! another thought occurs....How long before stadium gigs throw out U2 in favour of YouTube ?

I note that the Stern's African Music chart is just as full of older stuff as the mainstream chart. Disposable income...........
