A scarce French copy of the Beatles White Album, issued on white vinyl.
Offered for sale is a white vinyl copy of the Beatles White Album, released in France in 1978 as a limited edition pressing, complete with four bonus photos and poster.
The Beatles 1967 LP, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was wildly influential for both the music and the cover, and they took the opposite approach with their 1968 follow-up, making the cover all white and simply titling the album The Beatles. It quickly became known as The White Album, due to the simple, all-white cover.
In 1978, the White Album was released as a limited edition pressing on white vinyl in several countries, including the U.S., the UK, and France. The French pressings are quite scarce, as few were exported.
About this copy: The record offered for sale is a limited edition white vinyl 2 LP pressing of the White Album, issued in 1978. The covers on these pressings had “The Beatles” embossed on the front cover, but the covers were not numbered.
There is a sticker on the front cover that reads “Disques en Pate Blanche” and “Tirage Limite,” indicating that this is a limited edition pressing with white vinyl records.
The cover is in VG++ condition, with just a slight dent on one corner. There is some overall discoloration or “foxing” on the cover due to age; that is, it is not pure white. This is quite common on this title.
The records are M- and may be unplayed. The poster and four bonus photos are near mint.
A beautiful copy of a scarce colored vinyl Beatles album and the first copy of this that we’ve had in nearly 30 years.
