A sealed copy of the limited edition picture disc of Abbey Road by the Beatles, issued in Holland.
Offered for sale is a still sealed limited edition picture disc of Abbey Road by the Beatles, issued in Holland in 1979.
Picture discs were proving to be quite popular in the late 1970s, so record companies around the world began issuing older and then-new titles in that format as limited editions.
Among the titles issued was Abbey Road by the Beatles, which was released as a picture disc in the United States, Japan, and Holland. The U.S. and Japanese issues were virtually identical – a custom cover with swirling colors and a disc showing the photo from the front cover of the album.
The Dutch issue was different, with the cover being identical to the regular release. The photo on the disc, however, was a composite showing parts of both the front and the back cover. These were exported and were were widely available in U.S. record stores when new.
About this copy: This copy of Abbey Road is a limited edition picture disc version of the album, issued in Holland in 1979. The record is still sealed and is presumably new and unplayed. There is a “Limited Edition” blurb on the cover and a “Made in Holland” sticker on the back cover under the shrink wrap.
The wrap is fully intact except for a 1″ break in the lower left hand corner and a 1/4″ tear at the upper right hand corner. A couple of corners are slightly pushed.
A nice, copy of a somewhat scarce picture disc.
