The mono album, available in multiple formats but most commonly as a two-CD set, consists of 56 songs and 13 tracks of dialogue; 30 of the songs had never been issued previously by The Beatles.

The Vinyls:
This is the original thick heavier chunky slab of vinyl only found like this on the earliest pressings. On visual inspection I can’t see any needle scratches or indeed any marks that would cause any clicks or pops. Any marks that could possibly be seen angled in strong light would be light whyspy sleeve removal type only. The playing surfaces are lovely.

The Audio Quality:
I have played the vinyls at very loud volume prior to this listing on a top system. Importantly using a dedicated mono cartridge. The audio is cristal clear and vibrant through out no distortion or any signs of groove wear at all. I heard no loud clicks or pops during the play of this vinyl. Lovely sounding copy. Audio graded at least excellent plusvery near mint in my opinion.

The Labels:
These are the original 1st issue Apple Labels: Any spidering can barely be seen angled to the light and there is little if no spindle wear the hole is perfectly round.

The Record Sleeves:
This is the original picture and lyric record sleeve.s No creasing, and no splits or tears . The vinyls are now always stored separately from the sleeves.

The Cover:
This is the original Garrod & Lofthouse gatefold cover un laminated glossy finish. There are no real creases on the front to mention this is nice and straight as it should be just very minor surface scratches are only really noticed if looked for.  The rear is also lovely   I would grade this at least excellent to excellent plus if not much better in my opinion.
