I‘ve never seen the total sales for „The Original High“ either. Only first week or so in a couple of countries and some certifications. But these were mostly for Ghost Town and only a few for the whole album.the milkman wrote: ↑Wed Feb 12, 2020 8:52 pmI think this is definitely the reason why they're not releasing Side B first like they intended. I still think the whole marketing plan was a disaster. Unfortunately I doubt we will ever get the total sales for this project.
My guess ist that most fans are going to buy the album. I‘ve a friend, who is a big fan, but didn’t buy Side A, because she didn’t see the sense in buying it twice. Especially, when you can stream the songs. There are probably more than just her.
And I still believe, that Adam‘s plan had been to release Side A and B only digitally and only the album as physical copies. But fans had pressed so much for CDs of Side A that they got them.
