Debuting on the same day: Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in HD Digital Audio, Picture Disc and Single Vinyl Editions.
The deluxe anniversary edition of The Beatles’ 1967 masterwork, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, will debut worldwide in high definition digital audio (96kHz/24bit). Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’s 2017 stereo mix will be released in two distinct 1-LP vinyl editions: a 180-gram black vinyl LP and a limited, collectible picture disc vinyl LP.

I assume the HD digital audio version will be available on iTunes?

The Christmas Box Set is £69.99 on HMV but no longer available on Amazon UK. It's £56 on Amazon USA.
Has the limited edition 7 inch vinyl box set sold out?
Beatles Nos. 1 and 2 on Amazon vinyl chart.

Chart Watch: With Niall Horan at No. 1, 1D ties the Beatles
Yahoo Music, Paul Grein - October 30, 2017

Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and John Lennon all topped the album chart in a 17-month period between May 1970 and October 1971. Zayn, Styles, and Horan have achieved the feat in a 19-month period starting in April 2016.

The solo Beatles were a bit older than the solo 1D members when they landed their first No. 1 albums as solo artists. McCartney and Harrison were both 27. Lennon was 31. By contrast, Zayn and Styles were both 23. Horan is 24. (Of course, the Beatles had been together longer than 1D when they started releasing solo albums.)

Two former Beatles each had No. 1 albums on their own in the same calendar year three times. Harrison’s triple-disc opus All Things Must Pass spent seven weeks at No. 1 in January and February 1971. Lennon’s Imagine spent a week at No. 1 that October. McCartney and Wings’s Red Rose Speedway had three weeks at No. 1 in June 1973. Harrison’s Living in the Material World replaced it at No. 1 in June, staying on top for a total of five weeks. McCartney and Wings’s Band on the Run had four nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 from April to July 1974. Lennon’s Walls and Bridges hit No. 1 that November.

Note: I’m not counting “supergroups” such as Traveling Wilburys. Three members of that group — Harrison, Bob Dylan, and Tom Petty — have landed No. 1 albums.

What are the Biggest Selling Vinyl Albums of the SoundScan Era?
A Journal of Musical Things, Alan Cross - November 7th, 2017

SoundScan–the record sales-counting tool that only registers a record as sold once its barcode is scanned at the cash–has been in place since March 1, 1991, in the US. Other countries–Canada, the UK and Japan–followed after that.

The system not only counts sales but can differentiate sales by format, too. Intern-in-residence Dorothy Lee went through a bunch of spreadsheets to find out which vinyl records have sold the most in the US since 1991 up until October 26, 2017.

Rank Artist Title RTD Sales
1 The Beatles Abbey Road 381,766
2 Bob Marley & The Wailers Legend 210,398
3 Amy Winehouse Back to Black 209,819
4 Miles Davis Kind of Blue 186,827
5 Michael Jackson Thriller 179,781
