This week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, the new "Now 49" compilation took over at No. 1, bumping the "Frozen" soundtrack down to No. 2 after four nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1. The "Now 49" set marked just the 24th compilation to hit No. 1 on the list, and, of those 24, a full 17 of them were "Now" albums.
The Beatles, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" - No. 132 - Following CBS' airing of the all-star concert "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles" on Feb. 9, the band's catalog gets a lift. This album, for example, is up 38% while the greatest hits album "1" at No. 37 rises by 91%. In total, there are eight albums by the Beatles on the chart this week. Watch for further gains on next week's tally, as CBS repeated the concert on Feb. 12.
