Reaching the latter part of their career, the most striking conclusion is that the band never did it wrong. Their singles continued to be gigantic smashes until the end as shown with their last 3 album singles moving nearly 11 million copies.

In total, physical singles from the band 13 studio albums sold a combined 63,8 million units, which in itself is enough to put the Beatles into the very biggest selling singles act of all-time. It is far from being over as the Orphan Album is coming strong…

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!


MARTIN!!!!!!!! 😍😍

or MJD


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 😍 🤗


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 😍


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