he Beatles now have platinum albums in their native England. You might be saying “How can that be?”, but the British Phonographic Industry, up until last month when it changed its sales award rules, had always relied on the record companies to request a gold or platinum award. So under the new system, all of the Fab Four’s 13 albums will now be recognized accordingly, although the number of sales can only be counted from 1994, when the Official Charts Company began keeping records. So Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is now triple-platinum album, and Revolver, Help, Rubber Soul, Revolver and The White Album have also achieved platinum status.
