She ought to think twice / She ought to do right by me

Gosh....Beatles demolish UK albums. The number one album, from dear old Dame Vera Lynn, bless...only managed 32,000

As 16 of the albums made the Top 75, Elvis Presley’s record of 14 simultaneous Top 75 albums, established in September 1978 a couple of weeks after his death, is eclipsed. It is certain that the impact of individual Beatles remasters was adversely affected by the release of the stereo and mono boxed sets, which pass into history as the most expensive chart entries ever. OCC recorded nearly 127,000 Beatles album sales last week, a tally which swells to more than 270,000 if the albums in the boxed sets are counted individually.
