CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

michelle

Physical Singles Sales – Part 3
Rubber Soul (1965) – 720,000 equivalent albums

Nowhere Man – 1,400,000
Michelle – 1,000,000

Revolver (1966) – 1,320,000 equivalent albums

Yellow Submarine – 3,500,000
Got to Get You into My Life – 900,000

With Rubber Soul & Revolver, the Beatles were now issuing the same albums everywhere. They were also clearly moving into an independent release schedule of albums and singles.

Outside of North America, Nowhere Man was almost released nowhere. Michelle shifted its million units in continental Europe, receiving no release in the US and in the UK to benefit the album instead. Got to Get You into My Life came out a decade later only to promote Rock N’ Roll Music compilation.

In other words, Yellow Submarine was the only track getting a worldwide release in physical single format, with an immediate response – 3,5 million units sold.

No wonder they are not considered one of the best groups ever, BUT THE BEST:)
Three things in this world that is precious, and we are lucky to enjoy.
The Environment, Animals, Beatles

Is it true that data from other markets such as USSR/Russia and Philippines are still needed to be added in The Beatles sales? And will you pls confirm if Long Tall Sally sales were already included in your analysis or is that part still missing?

Thank you!

Sonique

No, data from those markets has been accounted for. When an update is performed, we will look to see if any additional information/knowledge has come to light, which certainly has with regards to the USSR and adjusted numbers accordingly.

Not sure what you mean, with regards to LTS.

Martin, thank you 😍 🤗

Sonique

What do you mean by it will probably downgrade their traditional albums? Can you please elaborate on this? Will it not increase their CSPS since sales were missing from these countries?

Thank you, MJD 😍

Sonique

So the missing data would not increase their sales but to allocate them properly?
