Chart positions[edit]

As this compilation is a budget release, the album was ineligible to chart in the US, however in Switzerland the compilation entered at number ninety-nine, charting for a week. It was the only country in which this happened, probably due to its strong sales there. Later, the compilation charted within the Top 100 on the Dutch, Belgian and Italian charts.
