LONDON (Billboard) - A deluxe, two-disc version of Amy Winehouse's Grammy-winning breakthrough album "Back to Black" rose two places to No. 1 on the U.K. album charts.

Winehouse's sales figures, in the U.K. and beyond, continue to flourish as tabloid coverage of her private life proliferates. The deluxe "Back to Black" is in its 17th week on the chart, but its new sales spurt appeared to be at the expense of the original chart-topper, which slid 18 places to No. 30 in its 70th week.

The troubled singer kept Goldfrapp from a chart-topping debut with the "Seventh Tree" album, which came in at No. 2, mirroring the performance of 2005's "Supernature."

Mika's "Life in Cartoon Motion" rose two to No. 3. Another special-edition album, a tour edition of Michael Buble's "Call Me Irresponsible," jumped 10 to No. 4. Jazz-soul singer Adele's former chart-topper "19" rebounded two places to No. 5.

Last week's new entry at No. 1, the Feeling's "Join With Us," crashed to No. 11.
