It features such music greats as Queen, Oasis and The Beatles: the list of albums that have sold more than any others in Britain.

And ascending the list like crazy: Adele, with 21, her second collection.

Now the singer has found herself at seventh position in the list, just behind Dire Straits, but ahead of Pink Floyd.

Their record, The Dark Side of the Moon, is at number eight.

"It has been an extraordinary 12 months or so for Adele, and it looks set to become even more extraordinary as the days and weeks go by," said Martin Talbot, of the chart's originator, the Official Chart Company.

"Her 21 album has overtaken The Dark Side of the Moon in the all-time biggest sellers list - and by the end of the week, it may well have overtaken Brothers In Arms [by Dire Straits], too," he said.

The chart's top three places go to Queen with their Greatest Hits Collection, The Beatles, with their Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and ABBA, who are also represented by their greatest hits.

What's the Story Morning Glory, by Oasis, sits at number four.

21 has so far racked-up 4,142,000 purchases.

"As every week goes by, another record seems to tumble in front of Adele," said Mr Talbot.ADNFCR-2133-ID-801321483-ADNFCR Posted on 20 Mar 2012 09:56 to category : Band / Celebrity News
