Offered for sale is a set of two still sealed colored vinyl albums by the Beatles – 1978 limited edition U.S. pressings of The Beatles 1962-1966 on red vinyl and The Beatles 1967-1970 on blue vinyl.
About these copies: The albums offered for sale are 1978 U.S. pressings on the Capitol label, issued as a limited edition release.
As the albums are still sealed, the records are presumably new and unplayed.
Each has a hype sticker on the front indicating a colored vinyl pressing and a second sticker on the back cover with the song listing.
The wrap on both is largely intact. The 1962-1966 set tiny breaks at the two lower corners. The 1967-1970 set has tiny breaks at all four corners. These are very minor tears.
A nice set of colored vinyl Beatles LPs.
Background: In 1973, a company in the U.S. illegally created a “best of” box set by the Beatles called The Beatles – Alpha and Omega. That album was heavily advertised on television and sold well, but it attracted the attention of the Beatles’ record company, Capitol Records. They sued to have the album removed from the market.
Seeing a good opportunity, Capitol then issued four discs of Beatles hits themselves as two separate albums with the same cover photos:
The Beatles 1962-1966 covered the band’s early years and had a cover with a red border. The Beatles 1967-1970 covered the band’s later years and had a cover with a blue border.
In 1978, the two albums were released as limited editions on red and blue vinyl, respectively, in a number of countries around the world, including the U.S., the UK and Japan.
