Switchfoot's "The Best Yet" Opening Billboard Chart Position

According to MTV news, Switchfoot's "The Best Yet" came into the Billboard 200 Albums chart at #123, moving approximately 4,500 copies at retail.

A bit disappointing, but not too surprising. I haven't seen these in Target or Best Buy or Wal Mart... have any of you? It seems like Sony isn't really putting much effort behind the release, which is not too big of a suprise either... but at least get the thing into stores! So far, it seems only Christian outlets sell the CD; Credential Recordings is doing a great job once more with the record.

But there's your little news tidbit for today. Nothing much else going on on the Switchfoot front. Peace and Happy Friday!

most greatest hits albums dont sell well. with exception of classic rock and country--pod, hilary duff, jars of clay--all low low low

That's kinda sad... I don't think Sony's putting it out there like it should be..
