The Beatles Record Sales Over the Years

The Beatles have grown to be one of the biggest bands the world has ever seen, and it’s a pleasure to see a band become so loved and revered in the 50 years since releasing their first album. Not only were they a cultural phenomenon and a voice of the 60s, their records all sold well, a testament to their musicianship and song writing skills.
