Which Album Was Named #1 All Time In The UK?

The Beatles’ psychedelic masterwork Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band has been crowned the most popular British album in history.

In honor of National Album Day on Saturday, The Official Charts Company said that the band’s 1967 classic is Britain’s favorite album based on physical sales, downloads and streams in the U.K.

The chart reflects album sales of 135 million across more than 60 years. The top 5 sold about 25 million alone. Adele’s 21 is in second place (released in 2011 with 5.11 million sales). The Oasis album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory is in third place (1995, 4.94 million), followed by Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon (1973, 4.47 million), and Michael Jackson’s Thriller (1983, 4.47 million).
