Winehouse record sales surge

Sales of Amy Winehouse records have surged since her death, with her acclaimed second album Back to Black re-entering the charts almost five years after its release.

The Mark Ronson-produced LP made it to number 59 in the few hours between the singer's death and the sales being counted, the Official Charts Company said.

Fans also flocked to buy the singles from the 2006 album, Back to Black and Rehab, which re-entered the singles chart at number 81 and number 181 on Saturday respectively.

Purchases of Winehouse's albums increased 37-fold between Friday and Saturday, while track sales were up by a multiple of 23.

And sales of the soul star's music are expected to soar higher in the coming week.

Official Charts Company director Martin Talbot said: "Already the popularity of Amy's music with the British public is being demonstrated, with sales of her albums rocketing by 37 times over the past 24 hours, according to Official Charts Company data.

"While Amy has already had an impact on the Official Charts, we would expect an even bigger impact to roll through over the coming days.

"Such a demonstration of her popularity is the best tribute the British public can pay to this extraordinary British talent."
