This is the place to gather on Mondays and Tuesdays
to watch HDD build their sales charts
at the speed of molasses pouring from a jar ..............
Good morning all!
We will be tracking week 78 sales for Tried and True in this thread. This Week - Clay's 33rd birthday on Nov 30 and Dec 4 True Colors Fund benefit concert at Beacon Theatre in NY (holiday music).
Next Week - Dec 10 National Inclusion Project Gala in Raleigh where Clay will sing various songs including some holiday songs and will premiere a new single.
Our last numbers for TNT are from 2/4/11 (USA Today Idol Chatter column).
Note that this does not include albums sold through PBS stations as those are not sound-scanned per Pink Armchair.
The milestones from Clay's first four full albums are in post 2 of this thread for reference.
It wouldn't be an HDD thread without starting with our sales poem, kindly written by Ilbun.

HDD, hurry with the numbers for Clay,
We've been cleaning toilets forever and a day,
We want to know how our baby is faring,
We expect very good from all we are hearing.
Waiting for numbers is really a strain,
Makes my heart pump fast and hard on the brain,
Ease our nerves with a faster update,
Why is HDD always so late.
I think they know that waiting is hard on each fan
I think they do it because they know they can,
We want to know where Ruben, Kelly and Fanny will place,
But theres only one who will bring a huge smile to our face.
Clay, come on and show all the naysayers just what you can do,
No matter your placement you know we are so proud of you.
We love Clay to distraction, you know that's a fact.
So give us his numbers and watch us react.
