Lionel is Glastonbury's Number one

Lionel Richie & The Commodores 2003 release "The Definitive Collection" which  previously made it to number 10 in the UK charts when it was released, has re-entered the album charts at Number One after Richie's epic Pyramid Stage performance in the 'legends' slot at the Glastonbury Festival - its first Top 40 re-entry in six years and a jump of over 100 places.   Nearly half of this week's Top Album 40 consists of Glastonbury acts, with  Florence And The Machine  at Number Two and  James Bay  at Number Three basking in the 'Glastonbury Effect'.   This was the UK's last ever Sunday charts countdown, with the Official UK charts moving to Fridays in line with the new Global Release Day, which will see albums and singles released on Fridays worldwide, instead of on Mondays previously in the UK.
