Offered for sale is a limited edition white vinyl pressing of Let It Be by the Beatles, issued in Great Britain in 1978 for export only.
About this copy: This copy of Let It Be is a white vinyl pressing, pressed in the UK in 1978 for export. The cover is VG++, with a tiny bit of edge wear and some wrinkles in the lamination. There is some sticker residue on the back cover.
The white vinyl disc is M-, and may be unplayed. It doesn’t show in the photos, but there are some very slight brown swirls in the white vinyl. The record has clearly had very little play.
A beautiful copy of a record that’s quite hard to find.
Background: In the late 1970s, collectors were showing a lot of interest in colored vinyl, so record companies around the world began pressing both old and (then-) new titles on colored vinyl as limited edition pressings.
In Great Britain, EMI Records pressed four different titles by the Beatles on colored vinyl: Magical Mystery Tour (yellow), Abbey Road (green), The Beatles (white), and Let It Be, which was also pressed on white vinyl.
All four titles were pressed for export only, and were not sold within the United Kingdom. Most, if not all, of those titles were exported to the United States, where they were readily available for the short time they were in print.
All four titles are scarce today.
