Data fixed, thanks

most recent album - Now What

this seen to chart well but is not accounted for here. Is it yet to be addedor didn't actually affect the chart?

Because of the way we gather data this site is really good up to about 5 years ago, more recent stuff than 2011 tends to get underrepresented. The album you mention was released in 2013 and so we don't yet have any charts which list it.

The companion site (chart2000.com) has a better way of covering recent music, but on that site it didn't do well enough to show up.

There used to be certifications for deep purple from Germany, most albums till stormbringer were certified gold, it used to be here.

Could the Certifications info be updated?

Deep purple Charted well in so many countries sustainig their position for weeks.

I think they could've got certified a lot more.

Thanks.

We're sure they did, but we only have the entries listed
