But to be fair,
the BEATLES are not in another league, but in another dimension!
Their record "1" alone, released thirty years after the end of the band, has sold over thirtyfour million copies.
That's more than the SMASHING PUMPKINS have sold at all...


The Beatles' '1' Album Still Sells 1,000 Copies Per Week -- 15 Years After Release
Hugh McIntyre in FORBES
MAR 23, 2015

It should come as no surprise to anybody that The Beatles are one of the best-selling groups of all time. Though they were only together for a decade, the music they recorded has gone on to sell hundreds of millions of copies, and there are likely more repackagings of the same songs than there are unique tracks. One such collection, perhaps the band’s most popular, is proving how commercially viable they still are today.

Simply titled 1,the group’s compilation is still selling a healthy amount, considering it is almost fifteen years old. In fact, while literally hundreds of blockbuster releases by some of the biggest names in the industry have come and gone, the Beatles’ 1 has quietly continued to sell at least 1,000 copies per week. According to Billboard, the set has moved at least four figures for over 700 weeks straight, and that streak is likely to continue.

That all adds up to an astounding 12.5 million copies moved, and that’s just in the United States. When that scope looks at sales worldwide, the figure explodes. In 2009 it was quoted at 31 million, but the total has obviously risen by several million since. This easily makes the compilation one of the best-selling albums of all time.

1 it is a compilation of the number one hits the band charted in the UK and the US throughout their career. Released a little over fourteen years ago (November of 2000 to be exact), it topped the charts in almost every country, and was the best-selling album of 2001 in America. It was re-released in 2011 as a remastered edition, and it surged back up the charts to number four.

What’s truly incredible about 1’s ability to continually sell copies is the fact that any true Beatles fan already has all of the songs included on the album, and it wouldn’t be unusual if they owned them several times over. What would any real music collection be without songs like “Let It Be”, “All You Need Is Love”, “Yesterday”, or “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, just to name a few. The Beatles’ ability to move product week after week and year after year is certainly encouraging news to an industry that is watching the sales of its main moneymaker tumble.

CORGAN's solo masterpiece will be BAND ON HOLD, getting released when the relationship with his old bandmates again begins to sour.



Aren't we also missing -beside MACHINA REVISITED- a new GREATEST HITS record of the SMASHING PUMPKINS? Well, I heard the record company is just waiting for the sellout of the limited ROTTEN APPLES double disc...

People say we have the best relationship of any president-president, because he's called president also. Now some people might call him the king of China. But he's called president.
