THE CHART

THE RIGHT ‘STUFF’

Those who say internet file sharing hurts music sales have a lot of explaining to do. Sixteen months after the Dave Matthews Band’s abandoned “Lillywhite Sessions” were leaked to the Web and copied thousands of times over, the official commercial release of (mostly) the same material, Busted Stuff, debuted at No. 1, selling 622,000 copies its first week. In other news, the Crocodile Hunter isn’t the only Aussie finding a warm reception on these shores, as the Vines’ Highly Evolved climbed into 64,000 homes and took root at No. 11 on the strength of modern-rock-radio hit “Get Free.” Meanwhile, jazz boho Norah Jones continued her steady march toward the top, pausing at No. 15.
