Rubber Soul received it’s initial release on CD on 30 April 1987 along with Help and Revolver. On the same day HMV released a limited edition (2500 copies) LP sized box set containing all three CDs and a copy of the July 1964 Beatles book. It had a three week run in the charts, peaking at number 60.
It was released again on CD on 9 September 2009 as part of the stereo remasters where it had a five week run in the charts peaking at number 10. In the initial week of the remastered releases The Beatles held 17 of the top 100 positions. Rubber Soul was the fourth 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 46440 2, is in excellent condition as can be seen by the pictures.
