The Beatleshave some big vinyl news.
Just in time for holiday gift-giving,The Singles Collectionarrives November 22nd.
The limited-edition box contains reproductions of The Beatles' 22 British 45s, along with a bonus disc of "Free as a Bird" and "Real Love." The set includes a 40-book book.
From the 1962 debut, “Love Me Do” b/w “P.S. I Love You,” to the 1970 finale, “Let It Be” b/w “You Know My Name (Look Up the Number),” the collection underscores The Beatles' breathtaking creative arc.
The picture sleeve artwork was originally used in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Chile, Denmark, France, Greece, Holland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, the U.S. and West Germany.
- "The Long and Winding Road" was a single in the U.S., but not in the U.K.
- "Twist and Shout," which was an album cut in Britain, was also only a U.S. single.
- A lot of British B-sides are different: "This Boy" was the flip of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" in Britain," while "I Saw Here Standing There" was on the American 45.
