Individual total record sales?

Recommended Posts

I'd think the exact figures would likely be recorded at BMI, ASCAP or who ever takes care of Atlantic and there own label Swan Song's sales figure's and royalties payment's.

I also was wondering witch system that info is all based on, the old with 1 million for gold? Or the newer system putting 500,000 as gold?

BMI and ASCAP only handle royalty payments via radio and tv airplay plus public performances - they don't handle record sales. That's something BPI and RIAA do and they source most of their data from retail store and online sales figures. There is also another issue I've come across on the 200 figure. Apparently this figure excludes all cassettes, 8 track cartridges and record club sales.
