|Release date||10th June 1976|
|U.K. Album Chart Detail :|
|Detail :||Once The Beatles contract with E.M.I. expired on February 6th 1976, E.M.I. had the rights to release any of The Beatles
previously released recordings. This double set was the first album release where E.M.I. exerted that total control.
The package of this release has the catalogue number PCSP 719, but the two albums are individually numbered as PCS 7191 and PCS 7192, which once again, fits in with the Parlophone numbering of the time.
The album was also released on cassette tape, Catalogue number - TC2 PCSP 719.
The estimated worldwide sales of this double L.P. are over 1 million.
As with the "Red" and "Blue" albums, the presentation of this package was once again diabolical. The artwork was awful, no "special" tracks, no lyrics, no coloured bags, nothing. In fact, John had actually written to E.M.I. offering a design, and was not at all impressed with E.M.I.'s refusal and the finished product. The art direction was by Roy Kohara, and the amateurish drawings were by Ignacio Gomez.
Unfortunately, nothing new on the album, every track had been previously released, although the four "Long Tall Sally" E.P.
tracks and "I'm Down" were in stereo and on an album in the U.K. for the first time.
The final insult for The Beatles and this release, was that on 24th October 1980 it became the first release reduced to an E.M.I. cut-price label, "Music For Pleasure", where it was also split into two separate volumes - catalogue numbers, MFP 50506 and MFP 50507.
