This 1st UK pressing of George's 3-LP box set came directly from an Abbey Road studio engineer who worked on the album's sessions

Each disc bears early Apple labels with genuine 1970 EMI 'Factory Sample - Not For Sale' stickers present on labels 1, 4 & 5

The labels on discs 1 & 2 include the 'Recorded in England' text which was omitted from all but initial 1st pressings

Also, these early labels omit the 'Mecolico' publishing credit which was included on subsequent pressings

Disc 1 matrix numbers: YEX 817-1U & YEX 818-1U

Stamper codes: 1/RO & 2/AH

Disc weight: 152g

Disc 2 matrix numbers: YEX 819-1U & YEX 820-1U

Stamper codes: 1/AL & 1/GR

Disc weight: 140g

Disc 3 matrix numbers: YEX 821-1U & YEX 822-1U

Stamper codes: 1/RO & 2/GM

Disc weight: 138g

The set is contained within a U.S.A. printed 12mm deep box with orange paper lining inside both trays

Each disc is housed within a U.S. printed coloured inner sleeves (there were no U.K. printed ones)

The set is 100% complete with its U.S.A. printed, factory-folded poster

  Sold with letter (redacted for this listing) from ex-Abbey Road engineer Keith Adkins confirming his ownership of this set



Labels: Disc 1: NEAR MINT Disc 2: NEAR MINT Disc 3: MINT

All are clean, bright & undamaged. There are a moderate collection of light spindle trails around the centre holes of discs 1 & 2, but disc 3 appears unplayed

Visual: Discs 1 & 2: EXCELLENT + Disc 3: MINT

All playing surfaces are perfectly clean and retain all of their 'factory-fresh' deep-gloss shine. Apart from one or two harmless light hairlines on discs 1 & 2, there is little else to fault on this well looked after set. Closer inspection directly beneath my powerful halogen desk lamp adds little more than a sparkling rainbow shine to each side, all of which lie 100% flat on the turntable when playing

Sound Quality: Discs 1 & 2: NEAR MINT Disc 3: MINT

The wonderful sounding set has received minimal careful play on high-end equipment and the sound throughout is clean, warm and totally unworn. Apart from a touch of low-level vinyl background between tracks on discs 1 & 2, there is nothing more to say


A respectable fully intact example with some minor age-toning to the front panel & a small mark towards the upper left edge, but no writing or missing paper. All corners of both tray and lid are intact & unsplit. The textured rear panel is clean with a few small storage scuffs only. The inside of both the lid and tray are both unblemished. The spine lettering is a little faint but fully worded

Inner-sleeves: EXCELLENT

All are clean & flat with light handling wear with a small stress to one side seam of each

Poster: MINT
