Chart Watch Britain: Springsteen, Richie, Bolton, O'Sullivan and Houston All Land in Top Twenty

A total of five veteran artists make it to the British top twenty albums for the week, led for the second time by Bruce Springsteen's Wrecking Ball. The album drops from 1 to 5.

Further down the top twenty is Lionel Richie's Tuskegee, dropping from 7 to 10; The Very Best of Gilbert O'Sullivan, down from 12 to 16; The Essential Whitney Houston, up from 22 to 20 and Gems: The Very Best of Michael Bolton which debuts at 11.

Also new this week is a two-pack with Tony Bennett's Duets and Duets II.
