Barry Gibb’s all-star collaborations album Barry Gibb & Friends: Greenfields – The Gibb Brothers Songbook, Vol. 1 debuts at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart (dated Jan. 23), after selling 24,000 copies in the U.S. in the week ending Jan. 14, according to MRC Data. It’s Gibb’s best sales week as a soloist since MRC Data began tracking music sales in 1991.

The set, which features Gibb reinterpreting classic Gibb brothers-penned songs alongside such acts as Jason IsbellAlison KraussMiranda LambertLittle Big TownDolly Parton and Keith Urban, also bows at No. 1 on Americana/Folk Albums and No. 3 on Top Country Albums. It’s his first visit to both charts.

Greenfields also enters at No. 15 on the all-genre, consumption-based Billboard 200 chart, marking Gibb’s highest-charting solo album ever, and first top 40-charting set.

Among the songs covered on Greenfields are the top 10-charting Bee Gees’ Billboard Hot 100 hits “I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You,” “Too Much Heaven,” “Jive Talkin’ ” and “How Deep Is Your Love,” all of which were written by Barry and his late brothers Maurice and Robin Gibb.

Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales. The chart’s history dates back to May 25, 1991, the first week Billboard began tabulating charts with electronically monitored piece count information from SoundScan, now MRC Data. Pure album sales were the measurement solely utilized by the Billboard 200 albums chart through the list dated Dec. 6, 2014, after which that chart switched to a methodology that blends album sales with track equivalent album units and streaming equivalent album units. The new Jan. 23-dated Album Sales chart (where Greenfields bows at No. 2) will be posted in full on Billboard’s website on Jan. 20.
