Although released on 9 September 2009 (number nine, number nine, number nine) on CD we had to wait until November 2012 for this vinyl version which, again, beats it’s CD equivalent hands down. There are 14 albums in the box – the 12 original UK albums they released between 1963 and 1970, the US Magical Mystery Tour and Past Masters Volumes 1 and 2, and a marvelous 252 hardback book. 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.
Estimated Value : Around £250
