by VVN Music

British DJ Pete Tong, who has been releasing mix albums since the mid-90's, recently got back together with The Heritage Orchestra Conducted by Jules Buckley to tour a one-off show they had done in 2015 of classic house music.

The album recorded during that short run, Classic House, moves from 24 to 2 this week on the British Albums chart to take over as the top charting album by a veteran artist.

Along with it's ascent up the regular Top 100, Classic House is also at the top of the Dance Albums.

Tong is followed in the next three spots by Michael Ball & Alfie Boe's Together (2 to 3), Elvis Presley's The Wonder of You (3 to 4) and the Rolling Stones' Blue & Lonesome (holding steady at 5). Little Mix repeats at number 1 with Glory Days.

Just below the top five, Robbie Williams' The Heavy Entertainment Show moved 7 to 8 while Rick Astley's 50 returns to the top ten (up from 13) and Ladies and Gentlement: The Best of George Michael falls 8 to 11.

The only debut for the week, modern or veteran, went to Brian Eno whose Reflection opened at 78.

Ball and Boe remain at number 1 on the Physical Albums, Astley's 50 tops the Independent Albums, Van Morrison's Keep Me Singing heads Americana Albums and the Stones are at the summit of the Jazz & Blues Albums.

On the Singles chart, Clean Bandit remains at number 1 for an eighth week with Rockabye followed by Human by Rag 'N' Bone Man, I Would Like by Zara Larson, Touch by Little Mix and Starboy by The Weeknd Featuring Daft Punk.

George Michael's Freedom spends a second week on the top of the Vinyl Singles while Bon Jovi's Livin' on a Prayer is number 1 on the Rock & Metal Singles.
