Bush Makes the Cut

December 01, 1996

Bush's "Razorblade Suitcase," the second album by the English rock band led by Gavin Rossdale, debuted atop the national sales chart--but was unable to displace Snoop Doggy Dogg's "Tha Doggfather" from the No.1 slot on The Times' Southern California chart. Meanwhile, the new album by the Artist Formerly Known as Prince debuted far behind. Despite a media blitz that ranged from a live simultaneous concert broadcast on MTV, VH1 and BET to an hour of talk and music on "Oprah," the Artist was only able to generate enough sales for the three-disc "Emancipation" to squeak his way into the local Top 10.
