The Virgin Book of British Hit Albums

Out of Stock. Delivery time unknown.


From Abracadabra by the Steve Miller Band to Zoom by ELO, this indispensable, innovatively designed book celebrates fifty years of British album charts, telling you everything you could possibly want to know about every album to reach the Top 100. With new feature material covering a huge range of areas, bands and history, it's an essential part of any serious music fan's collection.

The Virgin Book of British Hit Albums covers everything, from the classics (Sgt Pepper, Nevermind, The Dark Side of the Moon) to the dodgy (Spiceworld, Seriously Orchestra) and the downright bizarre (Smurfs Go Pop!, Seventies Dinner Party).

Where else are you going to find out that:

Bridge over Troubled Water spent 307 weeks in the charts
Pavarotti has topped the album charts - twice
Lily Allen went triple-platinum in 2006 with Alright, Still
Oasis sold 356,000 copies of Be Here Now in one day alone
Both Gary Glitter and Mariah Carey released an album called Glitter
Donny Osmond has never made it to No. 1 in the album charts
