"It’s an amazing testament to all the artists and people involved.”

Australian music has dominated the top end of the ARIA Albums chart this week. 

Just weeks after demanding more support from local radio, Michael Gudinski is celebrating after taking out top spot with the Music At The Home Front record, which again jumped to #1 on the back of the triple vinyl release of the ANZAC Day TV concert.

“It’s hard to believe that four and a half months after Music From The Home Front first etched its moment in history, the long awaited release of the triple vinyl album, together with the CD and downloads, returns this fantastic album back to #1 on the ARIA chart," Gudinski said.

"It’s an amazing testament to all the artists and people involved.”

Meanwhile, the 20th anniversary edition of Powderfinger's Odyssey Number Five has placed at #2 just ahead of Perth favourites San Cisco's fourth album, Between You & Me, at #3.

Congratulations to Michael Gudinski, Mushroom and all the artists involved in Music From The Home Front on getting back to #1 with an incredible vinyl edition of the album," ARIA CEO Dan Rosen said.

"It shows just what a special moment it was for Australia, and how our artists come together and heed the call when we need them most.

“I would also like to congratulate the awesome Powderfinger on reaching #2 with their 20th anniversary edition of Odyssey Number Five. It is a landmark album by one of this country's great bands.

“And congratulations to San Cisco, on debuting at #3 on the ARIA Charts with their wonderful independent album Between You & Me.

“They are all part of a great week for Australian artists on the ARIA Charts. We have seen people all around the country continue to engage with our artists and music, and it is vital in helping many Australians get through these challenging times.”

Other local albums featured on the chart this week include the soundtrack to the forthcoming Slim & I documentary (#8), The Kid LAROI's Fuck Love (#14) and Lime Cordiale's 14 Steps To A Better You (#27).
