Here in Norway The Beatles' "On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2" entered at no. 9 on the official album chart, "VG-lista", while Paul McCartney's "New" has dropped out of the top 40. Over at Billboard's album list they fared slightly better and made it to no. 7 with 37 000 units sold. And the remastered "Live at the BBC" sold 9000 units, which re-entered the album at no 34.
From Great Britain, the Official Chart Company has "On Air" at 12 and "Live at the BBC" at 57. However, and this is nice, on "The Official Record Store Chart", which is compiled by Britain's independent record stores, the Beatles are number one with "On Air". The NME has a story about it. Of course, that chart is all about physical media. And the two-fer with both CD's is at number 26 on the same chart.
In Austria, there's a TV commercial for The Beatles' "On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2".
