Such is the case with this week's Billboard charts, which finds Floyd's psychedelic classic listed at #193 on the Billboard 200. The moment marks the album's 950th week on that chart, which is a first. Not only has no other album appeared on the album chart that many times, it's not even a contest. Coming in at #2 is Legend: The Best of Bob Marley, which is still sitting pretty at 625 weeks on the US album chart.
