Beatles For Sale received it’s initial release on CD on 26 February 1987 along with Please Please Me, With The Beatles and A Hard Day’s Night. On the same day HMV released a limited edition (2500 copies) LP sized box set containing all four CDs and a “Book Of Beatles Lists” by Bill Harry. It had a two week run in the charts, peaking at number 45.
It was released again on CD on 9 September 2009 as part of the stereo remasters where it had a two week run in the charts peaking at number 56. In the initial week of the remastered releases The Beatles held 17 of the top 100 positions. Beatles For Sale was the fifteenth highest of these.
I have 4 copies on CD, the one shown below, which is the original 1987 release, and 3 more in boxsets. This copy, catalogue number CDP 7 46438 2, is in excellent condition as can be seen by the pictures.
