|Back in the sunshine again, The Beatles' 1.|
In the U.K., the album has done one better, reentering the top 100 official album chart at #5, according to the industry standard, The Official U.K. Charts Company.
No. 1 in Japan!
In Sweden, the "1" album has reentered "Topplistan" at #18. In Ireland, it's back at #6, while the highest reentry is Japan, where we find the album at #3 in the daily chart today, but at #1 in the weekly chart! In the Netherlands, "1" is at #3. Many charts are still not published for this week, here in Norway the record charts are published Thursdays.
In Australia, we didn't think the album will be such a success, because reports by readers of the blog indicate that the new "1+" release (which is the one version most fans will want to have) was not automatically ordered by many record shops as standard stock, customers have had to pre-order the release and no extra copies were ordered. UMI has a job to do there. Despite these reports, the album has reentered the Australian charts, although a tad disappointingly at #45.
The original release spent eight nonconsecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200 during 2000 and 2001. It has sold more than 11 million copies in the U.S., according to the Recording Industry Association of America. Worldwide, "1" has sold over 31 million copies and was the best selling album of the decade spanning 2000-2009.
