Important point to note! I have been collecting Beatles records for over 45 years now and I have a few original Let It Be Boxed Sets. From my experience none ever came with a poster. I noticed that posters have been popping up on the internet that are supposed to be with the boxed set but I can tell you to beware, from my experience THEY DID NOT COME WITH A POSTER!
SORRY NOT FOR SALE!
The Box Cover:
Designed by John Kosh and original. This features the lovely fully laminated Garrod & Lofthouse box cover just very minor rubbing wear but barely any creases at the front and rear minor storage wear at the edges and corners to mention only super glossy laminate no splits or tears. Graded at least excellent to near as excellent plus in my opinion.
The outer tray cover
Inexceptional condition minor split at one edge to mention but this is exceptionally clean.
The inner book tray
Amazingly no splits or tears normally seen in a terrible state again this is truly exceptional.
Thebook is the original and all pages fully intact as it should be. no writing or creases on the pages.
The Record Cover
Againthis earliest original Garrod & Lofthouse printed fully laminated cover is in superb condition no splits or tears just minor crease to mention at the front opening edge but nice and straight. Graded at least excellent to excellent plus in my opinion. (Note,only 1st pressings featured the RED APPLE LOGO at the rear of the cover)
The record sleeve:
Original EMI plain white patented sleeve. Nosplits or tears very clean.
Side 1“YEX 773-2U”(Earliest possible)
Side 2 “YEX 773-2U” (Earliest possible)
The Mother Stampers
Side 1. “13” “AT”
Side 2. “2” “CP”
On initial inspection the playing surface is clean and looks like it has only had minimal play only in my opinion. The vinyl lays perfectly flat on the turntable. Only if looked at under a strong lamp I notice very small scratches on one side only, at least nothing too bad that would cause contant clicks or pops through out the play of the vinyl.
The Audio Quality:
This plays clean clear and vibrant through out no distortion, in fact side one plays near mint through out stunningly clean clear and vibrant. Side two plays clear and very vibrant with isolated light clicks heard in two places worth to mention. Amazingly no distionion at all through out. Side one is graded at near mint throughout and side two at least excellent to excellent plaus for the most part. I would grade this audio at better than excellent to excellent plus for the most part. Please allow for isolated ticks here and there, may be reduced with a clean before each play because this album has been stored for over 35 years or more. (It was noted that I could see debrit on the playing surface after play indicating that this will need cleaning well.) On the whole this is very clear and vibrant, enjoyable playable copy only heard like this on the earliest pressings very sought after and highly collectable.
Feature the Dark Apple label for side A (Only 1st Press later are lighter) with bare minimal spider marks only very minimal play indicated in my opinion.
