Yeah, as a matter of fact, I do. I wouldn't have thought that a CBS Morning segment would have much impact on sales.I would have thought that there audience of mainly older people had already bought the album ages ago.brian05 wrote:As explained earlier by WK1,bigred wrote:It sure is, I wonder why the sales jump ?stollar wrote:Nice increase for Pepper in the US
In answer to Sgt. Pepper's sales spike on iTunes, CBS Sunday Morning aired a special segment on the 50th Anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Grammy wins.

Very likely true, but regarding a catalog audit, it just never seems to happen. I even contacted Beatles expert Bruce Spizer last May regarding Sgt. Pepper as a example, he said he would contact Universal (As Capitol records is pretty hopeless) to get titles re certified... Nothing happened, as usual.thebigham wrote:bigred wrote:Look at these dates for when these titles were last certified per the RIAA... Sgt. Pepper over 21 years ago?
The Beatles are at 178xP with the RIAA. I'm sure they could get close to 200xP with a catalog audit.
