ELO is once again leading all other veteran artists in Britain on the British Albums chart as All Over the World: The Very Best of ELO moves from 4 to 3. Released in 2005, the album hit a new peak three weeks ago when it went to number 1.
The album also moves from 2 to 1 on the Physical Albums chart and 3 to 1 for album sales in Scotland.
There's even bigger news for an older album. Bob Marley and the Wailer's hits collection, Legacy, which was released in 1984, jumps 11 to 5 this week, the highest point it has been on the Albums chart since August 9, 1984. It originally spent almost three months at number 1 when first released.
Rick Astley's 50 also advances again, moving back up the chart from 14 to 13 in its tenth week of release.
There were no debuts by veteran artists.
The debut album from Blossoms is number 1 for a second week followed by Views by Drake, ELO, Chaleur Humaine by Christine & the Queens and Marley.
Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and M0 once again top the Singles chart with Cold Water followed by Let Me Love You by DJ Snake Featuring Justin Bieber and Dancing on My Own by Calum Scott.
Finally, Green Day hit the top of the Rock & Metal Singles chart with their new single, Bang Bang, which was released earlier this week.
