CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format Part 17 – Box Sets #1

For box sets too there is two kind of packages – extensive compilations with a random assembly of tracks and previously issued albums packaged together.

In the latter case, sales are attributed into each album part of the box set. In a CSPC logic that highlights the dependencies and the cannibalization effect between all products of an artist. It is fundamental to take into account that a consumer of such a career-covering box won’t be buying individual albums anymore. Thus, they all get awarded the sale.

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
