Offered for sale is a still sealed Canadian copy of the numbered, yellow vinyl release of the Beatles’ 1982 LP, Reel Music.
As with the U.S. pressings, the yellow vinyl Canadian pressings were issued only for promotional use; all copies sold in stores were on black vinyl.
This copy is number 10 of an edition of 3000 copies.
About this copy: This copy of Reel Music is a 1982 pressing on the Capitol label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact except for a small missing piece near the center of the bottom edge.
There is a hype sticker on the wrap advertising the included photo booklet.
While the U.S. copies had the numbers printed on the back cover in a white area where the UPC would normally appear, the Canadian copies had the numbers printed in the lower left-hand corner of the front cover.
This copy says, “LIMITED EDITION SERIAL No. 0010.”
A beautiful copy of a rare Beatles LP.
Background: Reel Music was a compilation album released in 1982 by Capitol Records that contained songs that had appeared in the Beatles’ films A Hard Day’s Night, Help!, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine and Let It Be.
To promote the album, Capitol pressed 12,000 numbered copies on yellow vinyl in the United States and 3000 copies in Canada.
These were issued strictly as promotional items and were not offered for sale to the public.
The album featured stereo mixes that were rare to the US or previously unavailable (per Wikipedia):
- The first US release of the British stereo mix of “I Am the Walrus”. Previous American releases of the song had the intro edited like the mono mix, although an edit of the British version appeared on Rarities two years before
- The official American debut of the songs “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Ticket to Ride” in true stereo
- A unique stereo edit of “I Should Have Known Better”, with the harmonica error in the intro fixed. This version was issued only on the Capitol pressing and has never appeared on any other record.
