The Beatles to Release Limited Edition ‘Singles Collection’ Vinyl Boxed Set

The Beatles’ last three years as an active band were their most prolific, with a whopping six albums of material and several singles released during that period (not including their solo and outside projects). Each album since 1967 has been met with a lavish boxed set, and next month the singles will get the same treatment when the group’s 22 U.K. singles will be released as a limited-edition box.

“The Beatles: The Singles Collection” presents 46 tracks (29 of which were not included on the group’s British albums at the time) on 23 180-gram seven-inch vinyl singles in faithfully reproduced picture sleeves, accompanied by a 40-page booklet with photos, ephemera, and detailed essays by Beatles historian Kevin Howlett. Since most British Beatles singles were not released with picture sleeves at the time, the company has instead used a selection of international sleeves — see the specifics below.

The set also includes a double A-side single for the mid-1990s-issued tracks “Free As a Bird” and “Real Love,” which were John Lennon demos embellished with new instrumental tracks by Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr with producer Jeff Lynne.

The singles are newly cut for vinyl from their original mono and stereo master tapes by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios.

“The Singles Collection” follows the September 27 re-release of The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album in a suite of Anniversary Edition packages — and although it has not been announced yet, a 50 th anniversary edition of the group’s swan song, “Let It Be,” is coming next year.
