Beach Boys Thats Why God Made The Radio

The boys of summer’s new album, That’s Why God Made the Radio, is predicted to sell between 60,000 and 65,000 copies when its first week of release is over this Sunday. Billboard is reporting that, if that number holds, it could be the band’s first top ten album in 36 years, since 1976’s 15 Big Ones, and will be the highest debut for any of their albums.

Over the years, the Beach Boys have planted many albums in the top ten including ten studio sets, three hits compilations and one live album:
Surfin’ USA (1963/#2)
Surfer Girl (1963/#7)
Little Deuce Coupe (1963/#4)
All Summer Long (1964/#4)
Beach Boys Concert (1964/#1) (Live album)
Christmas Album (1964/#6)
The Beach Boys Today! (1965/#4)
Summer Days (and Summer Nights!!) (1965/#2)
Beach Boys Party! (1965/#6)
Pet Sounds (1966/#10)
Best of the Beach Boys (1966/#8) (Compilation)
Endless Summer (1974/#1) (Compilation)
Spirit of America (1975/#7) (Compilation)
15 Big Ones (1976/#8)
In addition, a top ten debut next week would extend their top ten albums run from the current 13 years to an amazing 49 years.

It is also expected, per Billboard, that Adele’s 21 will recapture the number 1 spot for a non-consecutive 24th week, the longest any album has been at the top since Prince’s 1984 album Purple Rain. Sales are projected in the 70,000 range while Alan Jackson’s new album, 30 Miles West, is expected to have sales of 60,000 to 70,000.
