Christmas Collection (7 x 7-inch picture disc set)

7-inch (Item 979430) Official Beatles Fan Club (UK), 1960s — Condition: Near Mint-
7 x 7" Set

Limited binder-style set featuring picture disc pressings of some of the coolest music The Beatles ever recorded – a series of sides from special 7" singles that were originally sent only to members of their 60s fan club – and never saw commercial release at the time! Given that the music here documents a year-by-year visit with the group, the approach is one that definitely shows their transformation over a few short years – from the witty, quippy Fab Four of the first few years, to the more intellectual lads of the mid 60s, to the way-out cats of the final years – a time when the Christmas singles turned more into sonic experiments, with maybe a bit of Monty Python humor in the mix! There's definitely some music here, but it's second to the presence of the group – saying "hi", telling jokes, and showing a side of themselves you're not likely to otherwise hear on record.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 80s Fan Club issue, limited edition #14/1000! Outer case has some light smudges, in great shape otherwise!)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
