A BEATLES' HARD-DIE'S SITE

Received - Kingston Trio Vs. Beatles?

I was looking through your site hoping to settle an argument about a certain feat accomplished by the Kingston Trio and the Beatles. In 1959, the Kingston Trio had four albums in the top ten at the same time. Wikipedia states that the Beatles matched this. Your site seems to indicate only that they had three albums in the Top 10 in three successive years. But not four albums. And not at the same time. Or were they at the same time? At any rate, if you can settle this, citing a reliable source, I would be grateful. Bill Grimes

Dear Bill,
as you may easily see from the start, this is nothing more than a Virtual Museum, born to gather what's around regarding the Beatles, with no aim to settle anything or prove nothing, and reliablity is not a warrant we feel to grant, nor we think anyhow that this question (3 or 4? toghether or not?)is a matter that requires haavy words like this. We only want to bring a wide range of sources and materials up to our visitors' attention and enjoiment. What you see is what we got. So,what can we say about? If somebody else can answer to your question, it's welcome...
Thanks for your attention
BVM

It might depend on what country you're talking about, too.
