CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format Part 2 – US Albums #2

Continuing to go through their US albums, we face four additional million sellers. Issued in 1964/1966, they cover mostly songs from A Hard Day’s Night, Beatles For Sale and Help!. We can notice that Beatles for Sale generated more than 3 million sales through Beatles ’65 and Beatles VI, both of which sold a lot of copies on the back of its hits.

Once again, Orphan songs appear to be a tremendous addition to those packages. The situation we started to pass by when checking singles sales is visible again – the Beatles have not one but two discographies, their studio album outputs plus their stand-alone hits. That sounds quite theoretical but brings a real and massive difference to their final total as we are going to see.

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?
