Beatles albums dominate top sellers at Twist and Shout

There was a whole a Beatles mania happening at Twist & Shout last Wednesday when the remastered versions of the Fab Four's catalog were released. People lined up before the store was open and the store was sold out of the The Beatles Mono Box Set fifteen minutes after opening. "Then, throughout the day," store owner Paul Epstein said, "wave after wave of true believers came in and bought and bought and bought. I honestly thought we had brought in enough for a month's supply on some titles and we sold at least 80 percent of it in one day." The top five selling Beatles albums were Revolver, Abbey Road, Rubber Soul, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Magical Mystery Tour. See the remaining top ten for the week ending September 13 after the jump.
