Led Zeppelin complete their reissue campaign in the U.S. much as they did in the U.K. with their final three albums coming in between 9 and 13.
In the U.S., In Through the Out Door was the biggest seller, debuting at number 9 while it started at 12 in Britain. Coda was next at 12 (11 in the U.K.) followed by Presence at 13 (10 in Britain). In their original runs, both Presence and In Through the Out Door went to number 1 in America while Coda went to number 6.
The highest debut of a new album by a veteran artist went to Buddy Guy whose Born to Play Guitar start at number 60. It’s his eleventh album to hit the Billboard 200 but falls far short of his last effort, 2013’s Rhythm & Blues, which debuted at 27. 2010’s Living Proof also did better, peaking at 46.
At 136 is Insane Clown Posse’s Marvelous Missing Link (Found), the worst showing from the duo in 18 years. ICP’s first three albums did not chart but, starting with 1997’s The Great Milenko, their next ten albums hit the top 100 with the last nine coming in at 21 or better. The Marvelous Missing Link: Lost, released in April, debuted at 17.
Finally, at 187, is the debut of Collaborations: 25th Anniversary Collection by Dave Koz and numerous guests.
