Beatles Back in Top 10
Over 50 years since releasing their first single and nearly 44 years since breaking up — once again — the Beatles are back in the Top 10. The group’s latest archival release, On Air: Live At The BBC Volume 2, entered the Billboard 200 album chart at Number Seven with 37,000 units sold. Back in 1993, the group’s first BBC collection, Live At The BBC, entered the chart at Number Three with an impressive 360,000 copies sold in its first week.
Re-released in conjunction with On Air, Live At The BBC — with newly refurbished sound — entered the charts at Number 34, having sold a respectable 9,000 units. The Beatles’ last trip to the Top 10 album charts was back in 2006, when the soundtrack to The Beatles LOVE peaked at Number Four.
