Notes

Initial numbered edition with top opening G & L gatefold sleeve, black inners, poster & 4 colour prints, dark green Apple labels with Ⓟ & "Sold In The UK...." text.
This was released in error omitting the text 'E.M.I. Recording' on the label, so a second version The Beatles was promptly released with the corrected labels.

no 23 . sold for 4000gbp about 13 yrs ago...
This item was most likely given to one of the beatles or a friend of theirs, possibly family, incredibly low number.

The album stayed at no. 1 for 9 weeks, and was also the first double l.p to reach no 1

All indications point to this being an incredible item indeed.

Certain tracks credited to apple music, on the lp labels.
