Win The Beatles’ ‘The U.S. Albums’ Box Set
The Beatles recently released 'The U.S. Albums,' a 13-CD box set of the records on Capitol that differed from their U.K. counterparts. We've teamed up with Apple to give one lucky winner a copy of this set!
'The U.S. Albums' spans from 1964's 'Meet the Beatles!' up to and including 1966's 'Revolver,' and also adds 1970's 'Hey Jude,' which was a compilation of non-LP singles, B-sides and a few songs that Capitol missed the first time around. This includes the infamous "butcher cover" of 'Yesterday and Today' and 'The Beatles Story,' a collection of interviews and press conferences that had never before been issued on compact disc.
When the Beatles' catalog was first issued on CD in 1987, they went with the original Parlophone titles. However, the Capitol albums remain much loved by many American fans who grew up with the different sequences and the artwork. A complete guide to the differences between the U.S. and U.K. titles can be found here.
