The LP sold 81,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. for the week ending October 3, with 70,000 of that total in pure album sales. Meanwhile, OfficialCharts.com says Abbey Road went all the way to #1 on the latest UK chart, setting a new record for the album with the longest time between #1 positions at 49 years and 252 days. The Beatles previously held that record thanks to Sgt. Pepper, which had a gap of 49 years and 125 days between topping the chart, when its 50th anniversary re-release reached #1 in June 2017.
