Not his arrival at two with his new album The Christmas Present is so strange but the way it is. Of the 67,000 copies sold, almost 10,000 were cassette tapes. This makes the Christmas album one of the best-selling cassette tapes of this century, The Official Chart Company reports. Billie Eilish, The 1975 and Kylie Minogue also recently scored well on cassette but no artist did as well as Robbie Williams in a week. The last time that so many cassettes of an album went over the counter in Britain was in July 2002. It was then the compilation album Now 52 where hits from S Club 7, Atomic Kitten, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Ronan, among others. Keating up. Following the revival of vinyl, a cassette revival has also recently emerged. Nowadays cassettes are available from many albums. Another striking presence in the British top 10 this week is André Rieu. He arrives in sixth place with his new album Happy Days and that is a lot better than in the Netherlands, where the world-famous violinist has to do with a 26th place.
