Sgt Pepper named most popular album
The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was named yesterday as the most popular British studio album in history.
The Official Charts Company said the band’s 1967 classic was voted favourite based on physical sales, downloads and streams in the UK. The album, which includes the songs With a Little Help from My Friends and A Day in the Life, came ahead of Adele’s 2011 album 21, in second place, and the 1995 Oasis album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? in third.
