    Does anyone happen to have an inner booklet they want to part with? Please message me if you want to sell one. Thanks.

      If you can find it, just grab it because it sounds very good. I have one box form Nederland and one is from Sweden, and both are really great. The blue box is not so good because it is made of very sensitive material, but the most important is that the sound and pressings are very good.

        Everyone knows these 70-80s HM cuts sound great, and they really do. It always takes a new release for me to appreciate how well this set was made.

        I don't think there that many NM of these out there unless you can find the set sealed, it will probably be VG+ or lower. That being said, I think they are well made. Every single record I have in the set is scuffed like hell from the paper sleeve they came in, and these sets were definitely played to death, and yet my copies have low noise floor, and some even dead-silent.

        Probably every record I heard in the set is the best I heard the Beatles in stereo with exception to Abbey Road, which is fine sounding record, and way better than any US Capitol release, but nothing comes close to -1 -2 UK

          where on the 78 version, is "made in england".all the matrix numbers, match the 78 version
          • Lombardi's avatar
            My Abbey Road record has a much noisier floor than the other discs. Does anyone find the same? Like much worse.
            • kid992's avatar
              Why does Discogs continue to allow sellers to list one LP from this box set under this listing. It is the same with loads of other box sets on the site. it makes for a deeply unsatisfactory user experience when you are shopping for a complete box set
              • mikenaulls's avatar
                Does anybody else find that the records are uncomfortably tightly squeezed within the box? I pretty much have to jam the records in. That can’t be good for the discs or the sleeves.

                  Hi, I have a question. The color of the box is blue or black. Right?
                  Which edition does the black box have?
                  Or is it dark blue?
                  • meridicolos1's avatar
                    Hello! Can anyone answer about bc13 uk 1978, please? In the album 'Beatles for sale' I hear the beginning of the songs in quite places, between the tracks. And it is very quiet, really hard to hear. Is it expected? I 've never heard about this. Thx!
                    • jayfromzap's avatar
                      I supposedly have this version, and my Matrix don't match any other UK listing on here for 84,85,87.

                      LP04: Beatles For Sale (PCS 3062)

                      A-SIDE MATRIX: YEX 142-5-1-2^ HTM 6
                      (or is it 9? it is on it's side compared to the other markings, the chevron after the 2 is more like the top of a 7 with the stem missing, or a high placed hyphen)

                      B-SIDE MATRIX: YEX 143-6 3
                      (no sign of any other markings or misfires on this side)

                      Hope this helps.
