More than 450,000 albums were sold along with over 2 million individual songs, in just one week. “Abbey Road” and “Here Comes the Sun”, respectively, were the two big winners.
Legal wrangling between the Beatles’ Apple Corp. and Apple ended in 2007, it took three more years for Apple to launch the Beatles in iTunes.
