Even though the date of the Beatles' 50th anniversary on “The Ed Sullivan Show” is almost a month ago, the group is still making a stand with several listings on the March 15 Billboard rankings that were made public March 7.

The highest ranking is on the Catalog Albums chart, where “1” is #5, down from #2 last week. Also on that chart, “Abbey Road” sits at #20, down from #12 and “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band” is at #40, down from #20.

The group has three albums on the March 15 Billboard Hot 200 chart. The “1” album leads the pack at #64, down from #44 last week. “Abbey Road” is #141, down from #103. “Sgt. Pepper” is #183, down from #132.

But not every ranking is down this week. Some good news comes on the Vinyl Albums chart, where “Abbey Road” is at #9 this week, up from #11 from last week. And on the Social/Streaming 50, the Beatles were at #46, up from #48.

The Beatles had 13 entries on the Billboard Hot 200, 16 entries in the Catalog Albums, four in the Soundtrack Albums and one in the Vinyl Albums list for the week of March 8.
