Hi Rick, thank you very much for the info.

Very nice Rick. Thanks for the info.

Rick, thank you for this nice info! I notice that XXXIII is at 170, but if it's any consolation, it was No. 1 on Amazon a few weeks ago, and stayed there for I think 2 weeks. It was No. 1 in the AOR category as well as Holiday albums.

Chicago is at # 25 now all-time with 6336 points! Here is what I see happening in the next 10 to 20 years. Ray Charles, Neil Young, Prince, Paul McCartney, Aretha Franklin, George Strait, Jimmy Buffett, Pink Floyd, Chicago, David Bowie, James Brown, Bruce Springsteen and the Bee Gees will all eventually surpass the deceased Ray Conniff and Mantovani, who have not charted in over 30 years. This is what the Top 30 will eventually end up looking like:


01. Elvis Presley

02. Frank Sinatra

03. The Beatles

04. Barbra Streisand

05. The Rolling Stones

06. Elton John

07. Bob Dylan

THE TOP 10 ALL-TIME CHARTING ARTISTS ON THE BILLBOARD 200 ALBUMS CHART WHO ARE NOT IN THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME

02. Frank Sinatra
04. Barbra Streisand
06. Johnny Mathis
14. Willie Nelson
15. Mantovani
18. Ray Conniff
22. George Strait
23. Jimmy Buffett
25. Chicago
29. Andy Williams

It amazes me that Chicago has not been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I loved playing songs like 25 or 6 to 4 and Make Me Smile in my high school marching band in the early '70s. They've been thrilling fans for a long time.

Maybe Chicago evangelists should start a campaign to get the attention of the decision-makers. Positive emails and Facebook posts en masse are effective.

What do you guys think?
