Remasters sales, cont'd

Pop & Hiss delves into the numbers.

Excerpt:
On Billboard’s Top Comprehensive Albums list, which combines current and catalog releases, the Fab Four placed five albums inside the Top 10, with “Abbey Road's” sales of 89,000 copies the highest, putting the 1969 album at No. 3 behind “The Blueprint 3” and Miley Cyrus’ “The Time of Our Lives,” which sold 120,000 units last week.

The Beatles’ other Top 10 Comprehensive list entries are “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (74,000, No. 5), “The Beatles” (a.k.a. the White Album, 60,000, No. 7), “Rubber Soul” (58,000, No. 8) and “Revolver” (46,000, No. 10). Meanwhile, because the box sets constitute new titles, "The Beatles in Stereo" appears on the Billboard Top 200 chart at No. 15, while "The Beatles in Mono" lands at No. 40.
