Beatles Top Charts Again

Monday, 20 November 2000 12:00 AM

Since the compilation of 27 of the Fab Four's top hits was released barely a week ago, it has sold 319,126 copies. The record is also No. 1 in Canada, Germany, France and Spain.

The three surviving Beatles - Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr - were described by their spokesman as "dead chuffed," a British colloquialism meaning "very, very pleased."

The spokesman said, "It seems like we are passing the audition," a reference to the late John Lennon's comment on passing auditions in the "Get Back" track on the band's "Let It Be" album.

The current release is a collection of all the Beatles' No. 1 singles from 1962 to their breakup in 1972, from "Love Me Do" to "The Long and Winding Road." It broke through the 200,000 sales mark within four days. One critic said "1" is "expected to be a big seller for weeks to come."

British chart expert Gennaro Castaldo of HMV said the early sales figures for "1" indicated that it "is likely to be the biggest-selling album this Christmas, if not the year."
