Remastered Beatles Catalog Sales Surge

With still no legal digital download option available, the re-release of all of the Beatles albums after a painstaking process of remastering each one generated a surge in online and in-store sales of the titles.  Nearly 2.5 million copies have sold since Sept. 9 release - more than a million in the US alone within the week of the release. As of today (9/22), the stereo and mono box sets are ranked #2 and #5 respectively in sales by Amazon.  The top selling individual title is Abbey Road (#7), followed by the White Album (#11), Sgt. Pepper (#17), Revolver (#19)Rubber Soul rounds out the top sellers at #24.  Get more on the remixed editions here.
