In slightly less impressive news, I re-rendered my show list as an HTML table, enabling me to use borders, thus, in my opinion, greatly improving its readability.

Well, the good news is Celtic Woman: The Magic of Christmas debuted in the charts!

The bad news is it's their lowest album debut position ever.

It's difficult to compare billboard rankings of albums across time periods because:
- The World Music market has changed significantly over the past few years.
- In recent years Billboard has (as far as I understand) started including digital album sales and streaming (except for YouTube) to determine chart performance.

Ultimately, the number that matters is the amount of money Celtic Woman actually makes on the albums. As long as their margins are still decent, they'll keep making them.

But I find it sad that their two best albums in my opinion (The Magic of Christmas and Ancient Land) have the least to show on the charts of any of their holiday and non-seasonal albums respectively.

It's also sad that Megan will likely never see a #1 debut for a Celtic Woman album as a member of the group.  :'(

Ability to post weekly chart performance will be extremely limited going forward since Billboard no longer makes this chart information available to non-subscribers.

Somebody reverted the change, so the page is back up for now. Enjoy it while you can.  >:(

Well, that didn't take long.

They deleted the page without any explanation.

That's it, folks. I'm done with Wikipedia and all their garbage. Not creating or editing anything else. Somebody else can maintain their content.

The Magic of Christmas 2019 Tour / The Magic of Christmas Wikipedia Page
« on: November 01, 2019, 09:26:58 PM »
I created a Wikipedia page for Celtic Woman: The Magic of Christmas and linked to it from:
  • The main Celtic Woman Wikipedia page
  • The Ancient Land page (since The Magic of Christmas is the album that follows Ancient Land in sequence of release)

I'll add chart information once it's available.

The article is pretty bare bones at the moment and it will need additional independent sources or it will get taken down.

If anyone has any suggestions for article content or notices any mistakes (I'm sure there are a few), please let me know. Remember, pretty much everything posted on Wikipedia needs to have a verifiable independent source, so stuff we "know" but can't reference appropriately isn't eligible.

There are spoilers re: the videos in the discussion below

Orinoco Flow: Definitely missing Mairead's voice, but it's still incredible they got it to sound so good with only 2 singers.

Bean Phaidin: Interesting. They didn't try to fill in the vocals for Mairead's parts. They just had Tara play the melody on the violin where Mairead would normally sing. If you hadn't seen the show before, you might not realize anything was out of the ordinary and doing it that way was certainly less risky than someone trying to learn Mairead's part on extremely short notice. It did seem awkward to me, but only because I know Mairead's supposed to be singing those parts. Overall, well done.

Ballroom of Romance: Megan was singing Mairead's parts. This one is fascinating in that it shows how much practice it takes to sound so amazing. It was definitely a struggle hitting some of those notes without having practiced them much. It makes me appreciate even more how much effort must go goes into perfecting these songs so they sound so fantastic (and practically flawless) on stage.

I love this album more and more each time I listen.

I haven't started playing my other Celtic Woman Christmas material yet this year, but this one is a serious contender for my favorite Christmas album. This one might even be top 2 along with Ancient Land.

Ancient Land on Tour / Re: Susan filling in for Mairead Carlin
« on: October 30, 2019, 04:58:17 PM »
Karsten went to the show in

Halle/Saale in Germany on Monday.

Susan of course was filling in for Mairead. Susan sang her Voices of Angel's tour solos: She Moved Thru the Fair (dancing with Carl) and The Voice. The rest of the set list was similar to the north american Ancient Land tour except that Mairead's solos were omitted and Megan sang Over the Rainbow as a solo (it was apparently very impressive).
