THANK HEAVEN FOR AMOS LITTLE GIRLS
Retail Picture Tells a Tori, With Live, Gerald Levert, Macy Gray, Martina McBride and Diana Krall in the Mix
Tori Amos' new Atlantic release, Strange Little Girls, a collection of covers that puts a female spin on songs by Nirvana, Velvet Underground, 10cc, Depeche Mode and Neil Young, will be next week's biggest album debut, based on first-day reports from retailers around the country. The record should crack next week's Top 10 with a figure hovering around 100k. Jay-Z's latest Roc-A-Fella/IDJ album, Blueprint, which debuted this week at #1 with more than 450k in first-week sales, will remain in the top spot.

There are a number of new releases that fall just below, including Live, Gerald Levert, Macy Gray, Martina McBride and Diana Krall, which should sell between 60-80k apiece based on first-day sales reports. Live's new MCA effort, V, has been bolstered by the song "Overcome," which has become an anthem for victims of the World Trade Center tragedy. A video with the song set to news footage has appeared all over the Internet. Levert's Gerald's World (Elektra), Gray's critically praised The Id (Epic), McBride's Greatest Hits (RCA Nashville) and jazz superstar Krall's The Look of Love (Verve) will be among the weeks top debuts.
