I hope that is correct. It seems like a lot more CD's would have been sold if the soundscan reports were tabulated for this year. The only other scenerio I can think of is that one must report the sales during the two years " probation" just to prove that you are selling as an independent. I rather like your findings better.cochem wrote:A poster at the BB Candy (aka skeeter) just asked Bill the other night if the sales counted for Soundscan and he said "Absolutely"...he personally reports every night.... let's see...52 more weeks of Grease (June 09-June 10)and let's say 47 weeks because Taylor will have time off... 40-80 cds each show x 8 shows = 320-640/wk x 47 weeks= 15,040-30,080...COOL BEANSmouser wrote:The CD sales at the Grease venues are not counted : they are sent to soundscan, but because Taylor has only been independent for a year, they would not count...... you have to be a recognized for two years to have the sales count on soundscan. That is how I understand the system. I am certainly not an expert in this "stuff".... am learning as I go.
(it was mentioned in another post, that Rocket Science might have something to do with him not having to wait 2 years to report)
I read that also. Perhaps the 38,000 reflects the addition of last weeks sales. About 3000 a weeks ( because of the Grease shows) is about what everyone was speculating would be the numerical possibility.san wrote:Taylor said in an interview that 100,000 for an indie artist's release is substantial. 38,000 in sales for The Distance was a number I read somewhere
