Back to Basics achieved similar success internationally, reaching the top spot in over fifteen countries including Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland and United Kingdom. The album has sold 1.7 million copies in the US, and 4.5 million units worldwide.
This song book rocks! I got it for my birthday, and it has every single song from the album- just absolutely fabulous. And it is a REALLY thick songbook (considering it was a two disc album), so it’s like having two books bound into one.
This record stands the test of time, with a mixture of old and new. So wonderful to have the sheet music so I can play along!
