The Beatles are back.
The remastered Beatles CDs are a hit, and so are the box sets. All told, the Beatles sold 400,000 individual CDs since last Wednesday, when their catalog was reissued. They also sold nearly 24,000 stereo box sets and about 20,000 mono box sets.
If all their sales had been treated as one title, the Beatles would have finished second for the week. Jay Z’s The Blueprint Pt. 3 was number 1.
This is probably just the beginning for Beatles sales. With the holiday season upon us quickly, look for many of the titles to stay on the charts. This week, the group had four of the top 10 albums as well: Abbey Road was number 3, Sgt. Pepper was 6, The White Album was 7, and Rubber Soul was 9.
