Published March 22nd, 2013

Release May 21, 1979. Previously producible only on export to USA and British Commonwealth of Nations, this album eventually was official released in Britain nearly nine years after appearance in the USA. The album includes most of The Beatles’ later singles released in 1968 and 1969 together with both sides of the 1966 single “Paperback Writer”. Two rather odd and out of sequence inclusions are “Can’t Buy Me Love” and “I Should Have Know Better” both from the “A Hard Day’s Night” album that were included in place of “The Inner Light” and “Get Back” even though their respective A and B sides, “Lady Madonna” and “Don’t Let Me Down”, are included.

Full laminated “Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd” sleeve. White paper EMI custom inner sleeve.
