Offered for sale is an unusual 10 LP box set from Taiwan by the Beatles, called Golden Album – Right from the Beginning.
About this item: This is a 10 LP box set called Golden Album – Right from the Beginning, issued by Holy Hawk records in the early 1970s. The ten discs are pressed on black vinyl, and the box set includes an insert listing the album titles and song titles. All records say that they are stereo.
Albums in the set are:
- Help! (U.S. version)
- Abbey Road
- A Hard Day’s Night (UK version)
- Rubber Soul (UK version)
- Magical Mystery Tour
- Meet the Beatles (12 tracks; different from U.S. or UK With the Beatles LP)
- Beatles for Sale (UK version)
- Hey Jude
- Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Let It Be
The box is in VG condition. It has no tears or splits, but does have a bit of general wear, as you might expect from a black box. The discs are all M- and appear to have had little play. There are some minor imperfections in the vinyl, as Taiwanese pressings aren’t the best. Still, it’s a very nice copy of a rare box set, and it’s the only copy we’ve ever seen.
Background: Records from Taiwan are often sought out by collectors simply because they’re quite unusual. Albums pressed in that country during the 1960s and 1970s were unlicensed, and often came with unusual covers or were pressed on odd colors of vinyl. The pressing quality often wasn’t very good, but they made interesting collectibles just the same.
