Midweek Chart Update: Led Zeppelin at Number One with ‘Physical Graffiti’ reissue

New entries also come from Black Star Riders, Public Service Broadcasting, Big Sean and more

Led Zeppelin are Number One in the Official Album Chart at the midweek stage with the reissue of their 1975 album ‘Physical Graffiti’.

The album was reissued on Monday (February 23) to celebrate its 40th anniversary. ‘Physical Graffiti’ is the current Number One at today’s midweek stage, narrowly ahead of Chris Brown (pictured right) and Tyga’s joint album ‘Fan of a Fan’.

The record has been remastered by Jimmy Page and features a companion disc of seven previously unreleased tracks, which include rough mixes of the songs ‘In My Time Of Dying’ and ‘Houses Of The Holy’.

The reissue also features different takes on classic hits, including an early mix of ‘Trampled Under Foot’ called ‘Brandy & Coke’, the Sunset Sound mix of ‘Boogie With Stu’ and ‘Driving Through Kashmir,’ a “rough orchestra mix” of the band’s eight minute track ‘Kashmir’, as well as ‘Everybody Makes It Through,’ an early version of ‘In The Light’ with alternate lyrics.

This week’s highest new entry so far comes from Black Star Riders who enter the chart at Number Five with their new album ‘The Killer Instinct’. Other new entries in this week’s Official Album Chart at today’s midweek stage include Public Service Broadcasting (6), Big Sean (18), Scorpions (20), UFO (26), Kid Rock (28), Falling In Reverse (37) and Darlia (40).

Meanwhile, in the Official UK Single Chart, Ellie Goulding‘s position at Number One is being challenged by Kelly Clarkson and her single ‘The Heartbeat Song’, which is new at Number Two.

The full chart rundown is announced on BBC Radio One this Sunday (March 1).
