Beatles – Abbey Road scarce Japan picture disc LP with obi

A scarce Japanese picture disc issue of the Beatles Abbey Road LP


Offered for sale is a scarce Japanese picture disc issue of the Beatles’ Abbey Road LP, issued in 1978, complete with obi.

During the picture disc craze of the late 1970s, two Beatles LPs were officially released in that format – Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road.  Capitol overpressed the Sgt. Pepper LP, and it became difficult to sell.  As a result, the later release of Abbey Road. sold in significantly fewer numbers, as many retailers didn’t bother to stock it, fearing that it wouldn’t sell.

Both titles were also released in Japan, and the Japanese pressings are much harder to find than their American counterparts, particularly so for Abbey Road.  The copy offered for sale is in immaculate condition, with a M- cover and disc, which looks as though it might be unplayed.

The original obi and lyric insert are included.  A beautiful copy of a hard picture disc to find.
