About the Record

This auction is for an original stereo pressing of the Beatles legendary LP 'The Beatles' (Commonly known as the White Album).

This is an almost complete set! The only thing it's missing is one black inner sleeve. The cover is the original stereo top-opening sleeve and numbered 0369911. All four portrait photos are there as well as the original poster!

A highly collectible copy of this legendary Beatles' album that would look great in any Beatles collection!

The Cover : VG

The cover is holding fine with just some light, general wear and tear. The cover has yellowed a little (The Cream Album?) and has a little, light dirt buildup - probably more easily noticeable due to the colour of the sleeve. The laminate has bubbled over the embossed title. The corners are a little rounded and there seems to be a small, light stain at the top. The bottom seams are holding tightly with no wear or splitting. Side seams, again, are perfect with no wear or splitting bar a tiny little piece of damage at the bottom of the back seam. The spine has a little wear and the laminate has cracked and come away but hasn't split. Back cover is looking okay with a light disc impression and light dirt buildup, but overall is looking nice. Inner gatefold has also lightly creamed with a few light patches of dirt buildup, but for the most the laminate is beautifully clean. There's a very light little stain at the middle of both sides. Overall, decent sleeve that's holding tight!

Inner Sleeve : G+

Just the one black inner sleeve is included in the set and it's holding okay but has some wear and tear. The fragile paper has only really started to show tiny little splits in the bottom and one side. The most wear is along the mouth edge which has worn quite badly and has a couple of little tears. There's also a small tear at the bottom of the label window in the middle..
The Inserts (Poster) : POOR

The poster is complete but has torn quite badly along the fragile folds. It's holding though. No attempt has been made by anyone to tape or glue the poster so it's free from that sort of damage.
The Inserts (Photos) : EX+

The four photos are looking really, really good! These are the original photos with the darker, richer, more natural colours (for some reason my camera gave the photos a bit of a blue hue, but this isn't a factor on the photos themselves) and printed on the original, thicker stock paper and you wouldn't guess that they're 46 years old! The only real thing I can see is that there are a few little, light creases in a couple of the photos. But, apart from that, they look great!
Disc 1 : G+/VG-

The playing surface on the first disc is looking good but is covered in a fair amount of light scuffing. I can't really see anything heavier, though.
Disc 2 : VG

The second disc looks a little brighter than the first disc with a fair amount of light, faint scuffing but less than the first disc. There're a few slightly heavier looking scuffs - mostly on side 3 - but they don't look serious and aren't feelable under the fingernail.

Disc 1 Labels : EX

the side 1 label is looking nice with good, rich, dark green colouring. Both labels have quite a lot of light, fair spindlewear and a little whitening around the centrehole. Overall, though, they're looking nice!
Disc 2 Labels : EX

Like disc 1, the labels are clean with no damage or anything and with a lovely, rich green colour to them. There's a moderate amount of light spindlewear and a little whitening around the centrehole.
