Guardians Of The Galaxy 70s Music Goes No 1 In USA

Blue Suede, Norman Greenbaum, Redbone, the Runaways, the Raspberries and Rupert Holmes are all back at number 1 on the U.S. Albums chart.

At least that’s the projection from Hits Daily Double and, with a margin of almost 10,000 in sales over its closest rival, it’s certain that Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Volume 1 will be the number 1 album when the charts are announced on Thursday.

What was projected to be a close race was anything but as the soundtrack album has projected sales of 103,200 versus Now 51 which is in second, projected around 94,700. The sales of the Guardian soundtrack was up 81% over last week.

It’s an amazing run for an album made up of all 70’s era tracks, except for Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough from 1967. While the movie was projected to do high grosses, the soundtrack was never on the radar as possibly being a major hit.

Two other veteran acts are projected to stay in the top ten. Tom Petty and the Heartbreaker’s Hypnotic Eye is looking to end up at 6 or 7 with projected sales in the 32,000 range (down 74% from week 1) while Eric Clapton and Friends The Breeze: An Appreciation of J.J. Cale is looking at around number 9 on a projection of 25,500 units (down 56%).
