It didn't just graze the top 20 either, it shot back into the number 13 spot, which is pretty impressive for an album that's been out since 1972 and hasn't done so since 2011 (deluxe edition reissue). The main cause of this is attributed to a hefty discount on the album in the Google Play store, where the whole album was on sale for just 99 cents for a week up until December 7th. It should be pretty interesting to see how this new platform will affect other album sales as time goes on. It's not really anything new, however, as re-selling albums on new platforms and formats has always been one of the music industry's favorite ways to rejuvenate itself.

What albums have you bought more times than you can think of? How many formats do you own them on? Which ones? Whether it's on vinyl, CD, tape, digitally, or anything else, be sure to share in the comments below!
