The Beatles sold more than 2.25 million copies of their re-mastered albums in North America, Japan and the U.K. in the first five days following the Sept. 9 release, EMI Group PLC said Wednesday.

The Beatles are still breaking records for album sales and their legacy continues despite a breakup 40 years ago.

Most of the records were broken for most simultaneous titles in the top-selling charts by a single artist.

On Billboard magazine's pop catalog chart, for example, the band had 16 titles in the top 50, including all 14 re-mastered CDs and two box sets.

The Beatles' original UK studio albums were re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings.

The result is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since its original release.

The Beatles' re-mastered albums were released to coincide with the sale of "The Beatles: Rock Band" on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii.

As the most popular band of the 20th century, The Beatles are still beloved by music fans in the 21st century.
