    Default Sabbath U.S. album sales

    I live in the states and I know that form Born Again all the way to Forbidden the sales weren't great i was just curious if anyone knew how I could find them or actually might know what some of the albums did do in the states?

    I already looked there it tells you when an album goes gold or platinum but if it doesn;t reach that they don't give any numbers for how much they've sold. It might be info that's too hard to find

    I'd also be interested in US and worldwide sales info.

    As for U.S. sales, you can find Gold & Platinum certifications at the RIAA website @ http://www.riaa.com/goldandplatinumdata.php

    Here are Sabbath's highest placings and the dates they were certified.
    Very interesting and frightening low.
    (Check out Metallica's G&P's and vomit - they outsell Sabbath by about 5-to-1. )
