The Beatles are about to get back to where they once belonged – at the top of the album charts.
Their classic LP Abbey Road, which was released on September 26, 1969 and was No 1 around the world, is on course to repeat that feat in the UK 50 years on.
The album,has stolen a lead of 12,000 sales over last week’s chart-topp er Liam Gallagher’s Why Me?.
Abbey Road’s cover, showing John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and George Harrison on the zebra crossing outside their London recording studio, is one of the most widely recognised in music history.
South London collective D-Block Europe are set for the highest new entry with PTSD at No 4. The final chart will be revealed later this week.
