These newly mastered discs were the final pressings before the digital CD masters took over. All have wonderful presence and a rich, deep bass sound like no other pressings of the time. It was available for a short time one any is rare in this immaculate condition. You won't be disappointed.
Covers: EXCELLENT +
All are 'as new' clean & glossy with the only issues being a small upper seam stress to the top of 'With the Beatles' and small stresses to the spines of 'Help!' and the final 4 LPs - which have probably been there since new.
Clean & strong with the only issues being small stress tears to the corners of the front hinge and some shelfwear to the lower right corner. All of the gold print is clean & unworn.
This set is a must for all audiophile collectors and is a rare opportunity to acquire a full set of those legendary analogue DMM pressings in one go.
