Perfect Christmas gift for the Beatles lover -- the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's The Beatles/The Collection. This is a limited edition set (certificate of authenticity #17,098) that was released in 1982 with all the Beatles UK albums mastered at half speed.In addition to the albums, there is a folder with the artwork from the original album covers and a "Geo-Disc" to improve playback performance. The records are mint and interior items (sleeves, folder and geo-disc) are in mint or near mint condition, the dust jacket is still on the artwork folder. The black storage case does show some shelf wear (a few nicks and scratches) and the brass shows some slight tarnish (see photos).
None of the albums have ever been played nor removed from their sleeves!
