Published June 29th, 2013

Release November 28, 1977. This album is mainly a compilation of tracks previously available on the other Beatles albums. The only two not previously issued on British albums are “This Boy” and “Yes It Is” and these are simply mono recordings re-channelled into fake stereo, even though “This Boy” is available in stereo on a Canadian single. For the gatefold sleeve used the famous collage of photos taken by Richard Avedon August 11, 1967 in London.

Unlaminated gatefold sleeve with leather texture effect was manufactured by Garrot & Lofthouse Ltd.
