CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format Part 6 – Double Compilations #2

Although released in the opposite way – first the full track list then each individual volumes – Rock N’ Roll Music is one more notable Beatles compilation that has been available in distinct formats.

Focusing on more rocking tunes, the album was issued not only to benefit from Paul McCartney success in 1976 but also to use favorably the growing album market in continental Europe.

The theme of the album gives a higher than usual place to the group early albums. Once again, Please Please Me appears to have generate a huge amount of sales of compilation releases.

Mostly ignored from their discography, each volume of this set sold over 4 million units including 2,65 million as part of the first comprehensive release.

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?
