The Ultimate Hits is now beeing promoted with a 30 second TV-ad on the largest commercial TV station here. The release is promoted by Sony/BMG.

In the 6th week TUH is at # 28: http://lista.vg.no/show_list.php?ListsOp=showWeek&listID=2

It has done better than Scarecrow, which went to # 32 in a two week chart run in 2001/2002: http://lista.vg.no/artist_info.php?ArtistOp=show&artistId=1914

Even though I'm American, in this situation I must say - Canadians have the most exquisite of taste!

Garth has made an amazing leap this week from #5 to #2! http://lista.vg.no/show_list.php?ListsOp=showWeek&listID=2

#2 is his best charting position in Norway ever, The Hits made it to #3 in 1995.

(This is not a country-chart, despite Allison Krauss being #1)

If Garth feels like having a #1 party for his amazing success in Norway, I can host it in my living room. Just let me know!

Doing better here than in the US. Not bad. :-)

In Norway he has charted with these positions at the top 40 with TUH:

39, 30, 33, 35, 36, 28, 5, 2, 1.

Maybe he has a chance to get TUH sertified gold (15 000) or platinum (30 000) here in Norway too.

Garth has not dissapered here yet. The TV commercial is still runing, and TUH is still charting really, really well. After two weeks in a row at #1, he now is at #2 for the third week in a row.

So, in the 13th week, he is at #2 in Norway. Amazing.

Please feel free to drop by any time, Garth! I guess any concert at any arena here would be an instant sell out!

Please feel free to drop by any time, Garth!

if he does send him to germany as well. i guess he has to do a "little" coaching and foreign aid in good music. i didn't even find him in the top 100.

Sooooo good he made it into the UK charts - my first copy came from HMV.co.uk (who were charging £8.99 at the time - about $18 including shipping for the 3-disc set!). Though I did order my limited and pink editions from the US to help out on as many fronts as possible - hey, I can't afford to get to the US to see a show but I can handle a few CDs for Da Man!
