VETERANS WEEK

Posted on

It’s a little late for Memorial Day, but the charts don’t know that. This week, three veterans of the music wars are being honored. Rod Stewart remains Unplugged and Seated at No. 2 on the pop album chart, where he made the top debut last week. Meanwhile, Luther Vandross arrives with Never Let Me Go at No. 8, making the top debut of this week. And among older catalog albums, Bob Marley rocks steady at No. 1 for the fifth straight week with Legend. Marley’s ghost has gotten a boost from a new reggae craze, which has seen four songs, none by Marley, recently become hits. LAST POP ALBUMS WEEKS ON WEEK CHART
