BUT - please read below
THE BEATLES - LET IT BE

FULLY COMPLETE AND ORIGINAL (NO REPLACEMENT PARTS)

THE FIRST ISSUE OF THIS ALBUM ONLY CAME IN THIS DELUXE PRESENTATION SET. IT WAS RELEASED ON MAY 8TH 1970. TO OBTAIN JUST THE STANDARD ISSUE YOU HAD TO WAIT UNTIL NOVEMBER 6TH 1970. THE BOX SET SOLD POORLY BY COMPARISON BECAUSE OF ITS PRICE.

THE FACT THAT NOT MANY HAVE SURVIVED IN A COLLECTIBLE CONDITION IS DUE WHOLLY TO THE TERRIBLE DESIGN WHICH IS DESCRIBED BELOW

STARTING WITH THE OUTER SLEEVE. THIS IS A FULLY LAMINATED SLIDE OVER SLEEVE AND WAS DESIGNED TO JUST SLIP OVER THE CARD TRAY CONTAINING THE BOOK AND LP. THE PROBLEM WITH IT IS THAT IT IS MADE OF A VERY FLIMSY CARD AND THIS HAS RESULTED IN MOST COPIES TEARING ON THE SEAMS WHERE THE TRAY SITS TOO SNUGLY INSIDE. OTHER PROBLEMS OFTEN SEEN INCLUDE TERRIBLE CREASING AND LAMINATE LIFT. PEEL AND FLAKE.

This cover is in excellent condition considering the above

THE INNER TRAY

YOU WILL  NOTICE THAT THE TWO SIDE EDGES WHICH ARE FORMED FROM THE INNER TRAY ARE IN EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION. BECAUSE IT WAS THIS THAT WAS PULLED IN AND OUT OF THE SLIP COVER, IT IS VERY USUAL TO FIND THE FLAP ENDS SEVERELY WORN AND TORN, BUT HERE WE HAVE AN INNER TRAY THAT IS IN AS GOOD A CONDITION AS YOU COULD EVER FIND I BELIEVE.

THE ALL IMPORTANT BOOK TRAY WHICH SITS INSIDE THE INNER TRAY IS THE MOST FRAGILE OF ALL OF THE COMPONENTS. VIRTUALLY EVERY COPY OF THIS SET I HAVE SEEN HAS THIS TRAY WITH SEVERELY SPLIT INNER CORNERS WHERE THE WEIGHT OF THE BOOK CAUSES THE TRAY TO FRACTURE AT ITS WEAKEST POINT , BECAUSE AS SOON AS THE BOX WAS STOOD UPRIGHT, THE HEAVY BOOK PUSHED DOWN ON THESE WEAK POINTS, EVENTUALLY CAUSING THEM TO TEAR, THIS IS WHY SO MANY SETS  HAVE HAD REPRODUCTION INNER TRAYS AND BOOK TRAYS PLACED INTO THEM.

 I CAN ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE THAT THIS IS THE ORIGINAL APPLE ISSUE AND IT IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.

THE BOOK

THE BOOK ALSO SUFFERS FROM POOR DESIGN. MOST COPIES YOU WILL SEE HAVE ALL OF THE PAGES FALLING OUT AS THE GLUED IN DESIGN WAS WEAK, AND THE MINTE YOU OPENED THE BOOK TO LOOK AT IT OR READ IT, THE UNDUE STRESS WAS PLACED ON THE GLUE AND LO AND BEHOLD THE PAGES STARTED TO FALL OUT. DESPITE THIS, THIS BOOK IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.

I've added some more photos

the catalogue number comes from the label on the vinyl

also, on the outer 'box', there is a small amount of wear on the edge.

ahem...I've only just realised that it's the German issue as per the label on the vinyl - everything else appears to be in English

inside the book it says printed in England by Garrod and Lofthouse
on the back of the slipcase it says Printed and made in Great Britain by Garrod and Lofthouse
