You prob’ly think this chart is about you, don’t you, don’t you? Sure, the 19th volume of NOW That’s What I Call Music! debuted at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard album chart, but even though it sold one-eighth as many copies, Carly Simon’s Moonlight Serenade was the chart’s most notable album at No. 7. Simon’s fourth collection of standards sold 58,000 copies, enough to give the singer her highest chart showing in more than 30 years. Simon’s milestone comes a week after Carole King sold 44,000 copies of The Living Room Tour to open at No. 17, her highest charting debut in about three decades. Maybe the compilers behind NOW should put together an anthology called NOW That’s What I Called Music in 1974!
