Revolver Reloaded

What is the best-selling cover album of all time?

It's hard to know for sure, but based on the fact that it was one of the earliest of all Beatles cover albums and the fact that it still sells well (based on its Amazon sales rank), a very likely candidate is Chet Atkins Picks on the Beatles.

What was the very first Beatles cover album?

The earliest ones we know of are The Chipmunks Sing The Beatles Hits and Off The Beatle Track (by Sir George), both of which were released in 1964.  The exact release date of The Chipmunks' album is unknown, so we can't tell which one came first.

Which Beatles albums have been covered in whole?

Please Please Me, With The Beatles, A Hard Day's Night, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles (The White Album), Abbey Road, and Let It Be.  (See Album Tributes for details.)  We have not been able to locate any album tributes for Beatles for Sale, Help!, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine, or any of the post-breakup albums.

What Beatles songs have not been covered?

"Maggie Mae" is the only one we've been unable to find a cover of.  (Note that although Laibach lists it on its cover of Let It Be, they actually covered a German folk song, not "Maggie Mae".)
