The Guardians Of The Galaxy soundtrack, Awesome Mix Vol. 1, has made it's way to number 1 on the Billboard 200!
After debuting a week ago at #3 with 60,000 units sold, Nielsen SoundScan reveals that now it is up 83% with having sold 109,000 copies in the week ending August 10.
The multi-artist and 12 track CD joins Frozen as the second soundtrack to top the chart this year making 2014 the first year since 2009 that has seen multiple film soundtracks make it to #1 on the charts (Those being Hannah Montana: The Movie, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Michael Jackson's This Is It.)
With all of its songs being released between the late 1960s and late 1970s, and the majority being chart hits, Guardians of the Galaxy is the first No. 1 soundtrack where the whole album is composed of previously released songs.
