As Queen's 'Live Around The World' is their 10th UK No.1 Album and their first since November 1995,
I've created 4 Chart Trivia Lists, that reflect that...

THE BEATLES -- The OCC give The Beatles 16 No.1 Albums. This is because they regard the Reissue of
'Abbey Road', (2019), as their 16th No.1. They don't count the Reissue of 'Sgt Pepper', (2017), as their
16th No.1. As both Reissues had Bonus Tracks, they were not the same as the 'Sgt Pepper' that was No.1
in 1967 & 1968, and the 'Abbey Road' that was No.1 in 1969 and 1970. I've decided to count them as
The Beatles 16th & 17th No.1 Albums. I realise that this is very controversial and that some 'Chart Fans'
do not count them as 'New' Beatles No.1's. They say that they are still on 15 No.1 Albums. The OCC also
count the Rolling Stones Reissues of 'Exile On Main Street' (2010), and 'Goat's Head Soup', (2020), as
'New' No.1's for that Group, due to both having Tracks, that were not on the original 1972 and 1973 Albums.
So, The OCC credits them with 13 No.1 Albums - which is why I've also given them 13. (Again, I'm aware,
that giving them 13 No.1 Albums, is controversial and that some 'Chart Fans' do not count the 2010 and 2020
Reissues as 'New' No.1's. They give the Group 11 No.1 Albums). As The OCC count both Rolling Stones Reissues
as 'New' No.1's, they really should count the 2017 'Sgt Pepper' as a 17th No.1 for the Beatles - to be consistent...
