There was an article in Rolling Stone that stated "Exile on Main St." had not sold one million copies as of 1999. I was staggered by that. I just know "Stripped" and "Voodoo" did not sell 11.5 million. No way no how.

: Big Vic,

: According to the RIAA, total shipments of VOODOO LOUNGE to retail exceeded 2.5 million in the U.S. Soundscan, which monitors actual copies purchased by consumers, puts that number at 2 million. Virgin Records confirms that VOODOO LOUNGE sold in excess of 5 million copies worldwide. It is the third biggest selling STUDIO album by the Stones behind SOME GIRLS and TATTOO YOU...

: NO SECURITY sold slightly more than 300,000 copies in the U.S. to consumers according to Soundscan. I haven't seen RIAA figures to units shipped, but I would guess it was certified gold (500,000). Those numbers are probably double for worldwide sales...

: : I think your numbers are way off. VL and NS did not sell that many copies combined. Check your figures.
