You'll also note that only five of these are from the recently released "U.S. Albums" series, and those are all but one in the lower region of the chart.
There are three greatest hits compilations, the jam packed single-disc "1" consisting of all their number one records, either in the UK or the USA or both, and the more thorough "1967-1970" (aka "the blue album") and "1962-1966" (aka "the red album").
Last years release of recordings from their BBC performances has gotten a boost, as has their latter day albums, "Abbey Road", "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "The Beatles" (aka "the white album").
Weird to see the 2006 album "Love" - a mashup of Beatles songs mixed together as a soundtrack for the Las Vegas show - so high in the charts, this certainly seems to justify the plans for a repressing of the vinyl album which we questioned in an earlier post.
But even if it was mentioned as a February release, we haven't seen any more about it.
