Releases information

2nd December 1978
"The Beatles Collection" - Catalogue no. BC 13
All the twelve original studio albums (all stereo versions), plus one "free" album of "Rarities" were presented in a blue box with embossed gold lettering. The "Rarities" album was mostly a compilation of B-sides, EP tracks and German releases, and was supposed to be unique to this box set ... I, for one, was not too impressed to see it released separately the following year ! The box also contains a free poster.
Beatle fans were not really getting anything new here. Of the 200 tracks (yes, exactly !), only one was duplicated, which was "Yellow Submarine", as this can be found on "Revolver" and the "Yellow Submarine" album. Therefore 199 different tracks were collected together within the box. The Collection had a recommended retail price tag of Ł51:39.
