Not to rain on anyone's enthusiasm, but chart positions are RELATIVE, not absolute. So a position of #6 in 2021 might equal 2000 sold copies in one week, whereas in 1991 a position of #12 might have been 30000 copies sold. Also ... albums debut at their top position nowadays, there is very little "climbing the charts week after week" anymore.

And why is the chart position relatively higher in comparison to 1991, then? Because the change in audio consumption habits of listeners (less albums, more streamed single tracks) benefits artists with a faithful audience. So all those scattered CH fans buying the album in week #1 adds up to a nice chart entry. But there is no indication that the album has generated a new generation of fans.

I hope I'm wrong, though.

I wonder if Neil gets any kind of royalties with Fleetwood Mac....he would have played some minuscule part in an old album charting again if it had to do with people enthused by his singing/playing and buying the album because of that. I guess I doubt it would have been part of the agreement. Probably a fee and small cut of the ticket sales.
