Michael Ball, remains the king of the veteran artists in the U.K. as his Both Sides Now only drops from 8 to 13 in its second week.

The biggest of the new albums by veteran artists belongs to Jimi Hendrix’s People, Hell and Angels which premiers at 39. While the album is tearing up the U.S. charts with what will be a number 2 debut this week, the 39 is the worst that a Hendrix album has done in the U.K.

The other new album is Old Yellow Moon by Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, which starts at 42 on the Albums and number 1 on the country Albums.

The artist that is really thriving for the week is doing it with decades old material. Fleetwood Mac’s deluxe edition of Rumours is as 19 on the Album and tops the Catalog (Heritage) Album chart while the single “Everywhere,” which was their last top 40 hit in the U.K. back in 1988, has reemerged and risen to number 15 on the Singles and Digital Singles and 3 on the Catalog Singles charts.
