CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format Part 14 – Live Albums

Hamburg show was recorded in 1962, Hollywood Bowl ones happened in 1964/1965 and BBC appearances from 1963 to 1965. As a result, songs performed during those nights came from the band earlier albums. Guess who’s the strongest? You got it right by now I guess – it’s Please Please Me.

Between, although hardly remembered for their live albums, those sets have now combined sales in excess of 10 million units.

An update on The Beatles would be great.

BFD on amount of records sold. Theres more people in the world. All these groups/people are playing because of the BEATLES. I bought my first guitar from a guys living room. I traded my flute in for an electric guitar, at Jacks Drum Shop, after Feb. 1964 when they were on Ed Sullivan. There was no Guitar Center, or anything like that. Since the BEATLES, everyone and their brother play guitar.
