Only the Mono and Stereo box sets can chart on the Billboard Top 200. The individual albums can't make the Top 200 albums charts because they are reissues. They'd all have to go on the Top Catalog Albums chart, which I'm sure they will.

Well yes, they sound better, specially With the Beatles and, though I expected a little more from the documentaries, I'm happy with them, can't wait to have them all. The only thing I hated is the way the CD is packaged, I will copy it and never again use the original disc so it would not be ruined.
I was wondering if you could please let me know how the new Beatles remastered sets will figure into next week's album charts.
Here is the official word from Billboard 200 chart manager Keith Caulfield on the new Beatles releases, as they pertain to our charts:
"The two new box sets from the Beatles will chart on the Billboard 200, as the tally houses current and new releases, generally those 18 months old or less. On the Top Comprehensive Albums chart, both old and new albums mingle. Thus, the individual album reissues of the Beatles' catalog will chart on the Top Comprehensive Albums and Top Pop Catalog Albums charts."

Here in New York (and online), listeners were treated to wall-to-wall Beatles Wednesday on WCBS-FM 101.1, which counted down the top 101 Beatles songs of all-time to celebrate the reissue of the band's catalog. The specialty programming was quite the musical magical mystery tour, and the list's lower rungs especially provided either a reminder to aficionados or an introduction to more casual fans of the band's deep cuts that often don't receive airplay. The countdown also spotlighted radio at its best - creative, timely and interactive.
