(hennemusic) The Beatles' "Abbey Road" has returned to the US Top 10 for the first time in five decades. According to Billboard, a series of 50th anniversary reissues has pushed the project from No. 71 to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 after selling 81,000 equivalent album units and earning an 803% increase over the previous sales window.

"Abbey Road" spent 11 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in late 1969 and early 1970, and last appeared in the US Top 10 on April 25, 1970.
