Wednesday, November 14, 2007 – The Eagles's long road back to recording put them at the top last week, but this week is a different story because the quartet now has the second best selling disc in the U.S. Jay-Z notched his 10th number one album with "American Gangster" selling 425,000 units.

That was a bit ahead of Garth Brooks's "The Ultimate Hits," third with 325,000 units. The CD/DVD contains four new songs.

Former number one, Carrie Underwood's "Carnival Ride" fell from third to fifth with 121,000 units, a drop of 29 percent.

Taylor Swift's self-titled deluxe CD sold 68,000 units, good for the eighth spot. The disc is an enhanced version of her debut, which came out 55 weeks ago. She benefited from winning a Country Music Association award, the Horizon Award, for up-and-coming artists.

Little Big Town's "Place to Land" (Equity) came in 24th on the overall chart with 35,000 units sold.

The charts officially will be released Thursday.
