Although released on 9 September 2009 (number nine, number nine, number nine) on CD we had to wait until September 2014 for this vinyl version which, need it be said, beats it’s CD equivalent hands down. These albums were mastered directly from the original analogue tapes and not the digital masters that were used for the CD release. There are 11 albums in the box – 9 of the original UK albums (up to the White Album), the US Magical Mystery Tour and a Mono Masters collection – and a 108 page hardback book. Like the stereo box set each album is pressed on 180g vinyl and the sleeves replicate the originals exactly, including any artwork such as the Sgt Peppers cut outs and the photos/poster from the (top opening) white album.
I’ve put some pictures of my box set below and, as can be seen, everything is in pristine condition and all the records play perfectly.
