in at #8 in the UK, first top 10 since Rid of Me in 93, really impressive!!!!! and should have charted higher if it wasn't for all the Brits albums re-entering (Mumfords, Tinie Tempah, etc)

Some other figures I dug up:
As of June 2009, worldwide sales of White Chalk were at an estimated 279,000.
As of July 2009, worldwide sales of A Woman A Man Walked By were at an estimated 110,000.
As of April 2009, Dance Hall at Louse Point had sold 19,919 copies in the UK.
A Woman A Man Walked By entered at UK #25 on sales of 8,157.
First-week US sales of White Chalk were around 13,300.
Lol, I expected that one.

22468 PJ Harvey (8)
22,468 is really good - over 8,000 more than White Chalk's first-week sales.
I'm really proud of PJ for making this wonderful album, and so happy that it charted #8!
On the Hits Daily Double site that tracks building US album sales, Let England Shake is at #43 with 14,193 sales; the final Billboard chart usually adds some sales and the position may change but it's a good guideline.
Let England Shake new at US #32 on sales of around 18,000. Her second-best peak after Uh Huh Her reached #29.
LES entered the German Top 100 at #20
According to United World Chart, Let England Shake sold around 70,000 copies worldwide in its first week to debut at No.13 on that chart.
Down to UK #22 in week two with sales in the 6-7,000 region to take total UK sales so far to just less than 30,000.
It entered the Dutch album charts last week on #17 (made it the highest new entry I believe) and it's now up to #14.
EDIT: Which makes it the highest charting album over here!!! Uh huh her, second highest, only got to #23.
EDIT2: Wow and it's up to #4 in Flanders (Belgium) in it's second week, which beats To Bring You My Love (#5) and Is this Desire? (#8).
