so i'm not voting in this poll cos i have no opinion on this topic and don't really want to try and pull one out of my a**.

however, if you voted, i'm curious how your vote relates to whether or not you bought either album? i'm not gonna ask which album you bought and how you voted since James made the poll non-transparent. i'm not interested in sales, but i am in people's behavior and correlations, so......

James, since you started the thread, just curious if you are willing to share - whatever your vote is, did you vote for the album you bought or the other one that you didn't buy? or did you buy both albums? or neither?

I bought 24 Karat but was really disappointed in it, and traded it in to a used bookstore that also sells CDs. It's the only Stevie CD I don't own.

I voted that I don't think the new CD will sell as many copies the first week as 24 Karat. However, I think it will end up selling more in the long run. I hope it sells a ton of copies, but with the state of radio today not playing anything that was popular 15 years ago, who knows. I see this album as a Fleetwood Mac album, just without Stevie, just like Behind the Mask and Say You Will were FM albums.

And yes, I will be buying the new album.

I also pre-ordered my copy today on Amazon UK, because I also
pre-ordered Queen 3D book.

Despite our efforts, down to 36.

(I know it may be excessive to repost the link but I thought it was a good idea it be on each page of this thread)

Wonder how it's doing on iTunes...

I think 24k Gold was rushed. Stevie said she wanted the songs to sound exactly like the demos. IMHO then why re-record them? I think if a good producer got ahold of the songs they could have been better.
Threw it away at a used book store? OUCH That is harsh

I think people are deaf. The demos sucked. The songs don't sound like the Demos. She is trying to shove that down our throats because she knows it's one of her best albums and it's also a dig against Lindsey. Let's see how far she would of come if Gypsy, Dreams, and Gold Dust sounded like the demos. Puke!!!!

I didn't TRASH it, I TRADED it in- big difference! Just wanted to clear that up. I bought the special edition CD, the one that cost $50.00 and had extra songs and a nice photo album. We all have our likes and dislikes, for example I love Rock a Little but I remember someone here saying RAL was the only CD by Stevie they don't have because they didn't like it. That blew me away, but that just goes to show how subjective music is. I gave 24 Karat many chances, but it just didn't grab me. We can't force something. But I appreciate other people love it.

Not sure how the Atlantic Records connection happened (other than the innacurate description on Amazon, which states under Label: Rhino), but this release is not Atlantic Records, but Warner Bros.

The actual CD in the photo has the Warner Music logo on it. Both the CD and iTunes (USA) state this:
2017 LMJC Productions, LLC & Merry Go Round Recording Inc under license to East West Records, a division of Warner Music UK Limited

I think Buckingham McVie will outsell simply because already the promotion is better. Maybe not in a week, but I do think their toned down approach is working. Stevie tries to promote her albums by doing morning shows and singing competitions, but IMHO that doesn't target the right audience. In the internet age, releasing cover art and a single while new articles are published every couple of weeks months in advance is a good way to get people's attention. We have the time to get excited for it and two FM writers/players teaming up is mysterious enough that I think people will at least want to hear it, at the very least music snobs in addition to fans. I agree that Stevie's label does next to nothing to promote her. Sadly, as none of them use social media, they are missing out on a great publicity opportunity.

The album is on Atlantic here in the States.

Really hard to say, I think. There's been a lot of talk about this album, since its essentially a "What was supposed to be a Mac record but thanks to Nicks not participating turned into a duet album". Nicks does have the most star power of the three, but 'Buckingham McVie' could get a lot of traction as an aborted Mac album as well as the first recordings McVie has done in quite awhile.

Def if it had been a Mac album it probably would have hit #1 and I think could have gone Gold (Nicks's complaints about album sales notwithstanding). As Buckingham McVie maybe less impact but perhaps on par with what '24 Karat Gold' did.

X2, it was really a mediocre effort that is being blamed on the the internet for lack of sales.
