Beyond the Top 10: June 16 edition

Clay Walker Sales Heating Up: Summer’s here (almost), and the record industry is hoping that (cf. Martha and the Vandellas) the time is right for dancing in the streets.

Lots of new albums arrive outside the top 10 this week: Clay Walker’s “She Won’t Be Lonely Long” (No. 16, 20,000 units), Grace Potter & the Nocturnals’ self-titled disc (No. 20, 18,000), Saving Abel’s “Miss America” (No. 24, 15,000), Attack Attack’s self-titled project (No. 26, 15,000), Travie McCoy’s “Lazarus” (No. 27, 15,000) and Hanson’s “Shout It Out” (No. 30, 14,000) are the biggest among them. In all, 30 brand-new releases bow this week.

The Journey Continues: Perhaps thanks to the inclusion of yet another of Journey’s tunes on the new “Glee” EP “Journey to Regionals,” the classic rock band’s “Greatest Hits” climbs 48 slots to No. 56 (a 58% jump), shifting 7,400. The package has sold nearly 1.5 million.

Greek to Me: Maybe Russell Brand, aka Aldous Snow, has a future as a real rock star. The “Get Him to the Greek” soundtrack — featuring such Infant Sorrow hits as “Bangers, Beans and Mash,” “The Clap” and “I Am Jesus” — leaps 67 positions to No. 81, gaining 67% in its second week on sales of 6,000.
