Pop Album Chart : Rod Stewart Plugs Into a Winner

June 04, 1993|DENNIS HUNT

Veteran rocker Rod Stewart plugged into the lucrative unplugged scene, with impressive results. His "Unplugged . . . and Seated"--a collection of oldies done in a club-like studio setting--premiered on the pop album chart at No. 2. Fans eagerly awaited the album because of the success of its first single, "Have I Told You Lately"--No. 9 on the pop singles chart. Anthrax's move toward the mainstream on "Sound of White Noise" has paid off so far, with the hard-rock band's album entering the chart at No. 7.
