The Beatles' swan song, 1969's Abbey Road has been listed as America's biggest selling vinyl album of the 2010's, with 558,000 copies sold. The Guardian reported the “Fab Four's” one-time EMI labelmates, Pink Floyd came in second with its 1973 classic The Dark Side Of The Moon, which shifted 376,000 units, followed by 2014's Guardians Of The Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 rounding out the Top Three with 367,000 copies.
The Beatles were the only other band to feature twice in the Top 10 list compiled by Nielsen Music, with the band's 1967 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band collection coming in at Number Seven with 313,000 copies sold across the decade.
John Lennon as always was frankly honest when appraising his and the Beatles' work — and the group's Abbey Road was no exception: “Abbey Road, for me, as always with all the albums, I like some of the tracks and I don't like others of the tracks. And it's always been the same. I've never been a knocked-out Beatle fan by any of our albums, y'know? I like some of the work we do and some of it I don't. And Abbey Road was a competent album. I don't think it was any more than that — or any less.”
