    Considering it's not even selling at all record stores/chains and that it was just a album of tracks "just lying around" I would say it's not a bad debut considering the fact. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I'm surprised 6,000 people were able to find it, not great promotion this time out for Sam.
    It's good to be the King or at least know him.

    What the f%$k do you expect? Sam doesn't have t&ts (yeah, rothtards, i know...i know....insert fat joke here....ha...funny...ha), he doesn't dance, doesn't lip sync, isn't under the age of 20, doesn't do lame-ass rap/rock, and can actually sing and play a musical instrument. In today's music marketplace, that equals BOMB.

    No wonder he's not touring with the Waborita's. If you match ticket sales to album sales he wouldn't even sell out a small arena.

    It's no suprise he's doing his best to get back into Van Halen, he certainly isn't making any money selling albums or his crappy tequila. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    He does fine when he puts effort into promoting. Red Voodoo and MTM both had decent sales and he had videos for them, and did the whole promotion thing. He was still even able to play bigger arenas at the time. Then with 1013 and Not For Sale he didnt make a video, didnt do the best job of promoting, and they sold/are selling poorly. If Sammy put forth a little more effort he could be doing pretty decent again. I do like seeing him in small arenas though, not a bad seat in the house.

    Wrong on the video comment for "N4S". Sam was in the middle of making a video for the lead-off single, "Things've Changed" while I was in Cabo last week. I even got to participate in a portion of it that was filmed at the Cantina on 10/12 with about 100 or so others. It took about 4 hours of filming that day. The entire time he was in Cabo, that's all he said he'd been doing every day.

    As for sales, the album just came out 11 days ago. Even though it's only been 11 days I don't think you can really call it a "bomb". It's no sure-fire success, given his past track record, but it's certainly no bomb either. He still has a few Stateside dates to play, and he's undecided as to whether or not he might tour behind it after all, whether full-scale or a mini-theater tour.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    Let's face it, this album isn't selling because Sam's not interested in selling records nowadays. If he wanted to, he could sell more. He's a very wise businessman, as his autobiography tells us.
    There's no real label and no real tour, and not much press. Usually you need a press build-up before the albunm gets released.
    The intresting question is "why doesn't Sam wants to sell records?"
    There could be several answers to that question...

    It's an album of leftover tracks. It's not breaking any new ground, not being pushed with the fervor of a comeback or concept album or pre-summer tour album. It's an album of leftover tracks. Since these things are usually only snapped up by collectors and diehard fans anyway, I would say 6000 in 11 days is respectable.

    It's a garage sale folks.

    I couldn't even find it at Media Play, which is a huge store. Then, I walked into Kmart just as a desperate hope, and in their puny little music section there's a copy of Sammy's Not 4 Sale...bless them. So, of course, I got it.
