Led Zeppelin Mothership Tops European Top 100 Albums Chart

Led Zeppelin's "Mothership" compilation (Rhino/Atlantic) surges 6-1 in its fifth week on European Top 100 Albums to top the survey for the first time.

The Zeppelin album enjoys a sales spurt from publicity surrounding the group's reunion performance at the Ahmet Ertegun memorial concert at London's 02 Arena Dec. 10. In Austria it leaps 16-4, in Germany 12-4, and in the group's native United Kingdom, it's up 8-4. "The massive buzz around the reunion gig, coupled with a powerful marketing campaign, has seen sales of 'Mothership' soar," says Dan Chalmers, VP at Rhino UK & International. "The strength of both the two and three disc versions has meant it's appealing to long term collectors and, importantly, new fans, and proving to be an ideal festive gift."
