Offered for sale is a still sealed 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 still sealed white vinyl pressing, pressed in the UK in 1978 for export only.
This is the original 1978 issue and not one of the newer unauthorized white vinyl pressings that have been seen on the market recently.
As the album is still sealed, the white vinyl record is presumably new and unplayed.
The shrink wrap is 100% intact, with no rips, tears or holes. There is a hype sticker attached to the shrink wrap that says “Limited Edition Surprise Vinyl.”
This one is as close to perfect as you’ll ever see and will likely represent your final upgrade.
A beautiful copy of a record that’s quite hard to find and the first sealed copy we’ve seen in decades.
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.
