This set was issued in the early 80's to much fanfare. Mobile Fidelity had created quite a name for themselves for ultra-quality vinyl re-issues of great and groundbreaking albums. But this set was very ambitious --All 13 of the Beatles original British albums! Issued in a limited edition pressing of 25,000 copies on high-quality “Super Vinyl” by JVC in Japan and half speed mastered for optimum sound quality. Included is a Geodisc cartridge alignment tool to help take the guesswork out of turntable setup.
The Albums in this Collection follow the UK releases (more songs per album). They are:
Please Please Me
With The Beatles
A Hard Days Night
Beatles For Sale
Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Beatles (The White Album – this is a 2 LP set)
Magical Mystery Tour
Let It Be
True to high class nature of everything Beatles, the set was issued in a lavish box with gold foil imprint, brass hinges, along with a 12″x12″ photo booklet and the Geodisc cartridge alignment tool. Each of the albums was packaged in a special cover that depicted a photo of that particular album’s master tape. These are interesting to peruse for the Beatles aficionado. Each album also included a custom posterboard stiffener to prevent warpage. Each set was numbered on the inside of the book with a 'Certificate of Authenticty". This is set #21869.
I am the original owner. The records are Mint to Mint Minus. The entire set was unplayed for over three decades until a listening session with some friends a few years, and then only a few have been played. The box is VG+ with just traces of wear and some small scuffs. Book is in excellent condition and the GeoDisc is pretty inert.
You can Google this and get pretty good idea of prices. eBay has current listings from $700 to $2k and the median historical price is $945 so I think I have set this fairly.
And now the fine print: Buyer pays all shipping, insurance (recommended) and Paypal fees. Shipping to US and Canada only. Shipping estimate may vary from actual, I have have found the calculators are inaccurate. I will verify with buyer prior to confirming order.
