The Beatles Singles Collection 1976
The Beatles Singles Collection - Front of Display Box (1976)
6th March 1976

All 22 7" singles PLUS "Yesterday" were issued separately in new green covers, see Yesterday to see an example of the format of the cover, and full detail of the issue.
Although this was NOT a boxset as such, each record shop was given a box to display the singles in, the front of which you can see I have scanned above. Oddly, the box front doesn't bother listing "Yesterday" which was part of this campaign.
