CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format Part 3 – Local Releases

The US isn’t the only country that got local releases. In plenty of countries their 1963 to 1966 releases were local ones like the few listed here. If other local albums got incorporated into studio albums estimates already, that set of records had specific track lists of songs coming from distinct albums.

The most notable album from this list is The Early Beatles. This record was a Capitol-made replacement of Vee-Jay owned Introducing… the Beatles that got deleted in late 1964 due to legal issues. Thanks to the CSPC, we can get ride of those technicalities and assign sales of all those packages into the real value creator, Please Please Me.

Update would be nice 🙂


the RIAA certifications on red album and blue album also include download and streaming, seen how much higher are they ?


I’ve just realized that the physical single sales of Beatles For Sale and A Hard Day’s Night are swapped.


I think this should get an update. It’s been 3 years and a lot of things have happened like the anniversary editions of Abbey Road and the White Album. (Also pls do George and Ringo’s CSPC 🙂 )


I’m positive they’ll be well above 420 mill after the update.


Beatles featuring Tony Sheridan is included in the compilation section on page 46

Amazing work, congratulations! However you’ve missed one important EP release. The Beatles fifth Ep release, Long Tall Sally, which was released in Britain in June 1964 and is another reported global million seller.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
