I just read a GREAT article in last weeks Billboard Magazine re: Bakersfield. It told how much the staff at MCA loves & respects Vince & still wanted to be a part of his musical life. Within the article it mentioned the sales numbers for Vince's last 2 releases. Guitar Slinger sold 104,000 copies & These Days sold 383,000. These Days was a 4 disc set so those numbers equate to 383,000 x 4 = 1,532,000. My point is everyone here needs to do what they can to spread the word. Facebook, Twitter, post a review on Amazon.com, Instagram........ WHATEVER it takes. WHATEVER you can do to spread the word. YES it is THAT important! You can even tell a friend.... the old word of mouth. Make sure you buy a copy in the FIRST week so it debuts as high as possible. Even a few CD's here or there could make it jump a few spots on the chart.
Is there a link for this article Reggie? I searched the Billboard site and couldn't find anything except a June 10th.article about Bakersfield.
