The Beatles to release limited edition collection of seven-inch vinyl singles
A new limited edition collection of remastered seven-inch vinyl singles created by The Beatles is set for release.
The collectible box set will hold 23 180-Gram vinyl singles in what has been described as ‘Faithfully Reproduced International Picture Sleeves’ with exclusive double A-side singles for ‘Free As A Bird’ and ‘Real Love’.
“The Singles Collection offers a fascinating view of the creative trajectory of The Beatles’ John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr across their relatively brief recording tenure together,” a statement reads. “Because it was rare in the 1960s for UK singles to be released in picture sleeves, the collection’s seven-inches are presented in reproduced picture sleeves from their original releases in several countries around the world, including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Chile, Denmark, France, Greece, Holland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UK, USA, and West Germany.”
The Singles Collection follows the September 27 release of The Beatles’ Abbey Road album in a suite of Anniversary Edition packages.
