Sgt Pepper to be a UK Number One?

The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was last Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart some 49 years ago, but it could return to the top spot this week.

The classic album, which spent 27 weeks at Number 1 in 1967 and 1968, was last Number 1 in March 1968; 49 years on, the album’s 50th anniversary edition, which features remastered and remixed material in addition to unreleased session tapes, could return to the chart’s summit.

The LP, which is the best-selling studio album in UK chart history, has shifted a further 24,000 combined chart sales as of today’s midweek sales flash, and has a considerable lead over Ed Sheeran’s ÷, which looks to slip from the top spot it held last week.
