Beatles MFSL Collection w/Standard Covers! - Vinyl NM - Very Cool!
This is a really cool collection that I put together myself. I collected all of the Beatles' MFSL albums with the standard covers and decided I wanted "The Collection" box to house them in. So I sourced a hinged box, book with Ltd Edition Number and a GEO-disc and slapped them all together.This set includes the ULTRA RARE MFSL individual pressing of "WITH THE BEATLES". It is rarer than the others due to the fact that a damaged metal part for the recording ensured it had a very limited run. None of the vinyl in this collection has been played.
These were still sealed before I opened them and put them in the collection. A Hard Day's Night. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. These were in my previous collection of opened, but never played discs. The vinyl itself in EVERY album is just like near mint/untouched.
Unfortunately the covers aren't in Mint/Perfect condition. I tried to replace with other sealed ones, but kept getting dinged ones and eventually gave up. That being said, they are still in fantastic condition. The outer box is far from perfect. It has dings and such, and the hinges and latch are tarnished, but they are in perfect working condition.I've tried to take representative photos so that you can see this. The Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (or MFSL) Beatles Box set "The Collection" was released in 1982. Before the box set, MFSL released three of the Beatles LPs as individual items. The first was "Abbey Road" either on December 1979 or January 1980.
The process for the discs included using the master tapes (when available) and then utilizing "half-speed" mastering of the lacquers. This was then pressed onto "super vinyl" when sent from California (MFSL headquarters) to the Yokohama factory of the Victor company in Japan in order to fabricate the metal masters and the press the records. This "super vinyl" was transparent when held up to light and was heavy vinyl and harder than regular vinyl in order to establish the best sound possible. The master tape used for "Abbey Road" was actually the Capitol sub-masters and not the original from Abbey Road.
The second Beatles LP from MFSL was "Magical Mystery Tour". The master used for this project was actually from EMI but this version originated from Capitol and was used by EMI for the 1970s re-issue. This didn't make much sense when considering that this version contained second generation stereo for eight songs and fake (duophonic) stereo for three songs. This second release was put out on February 1, 1981.The third Beatles LP from MFSL was "The Beatles (White Album)" issued on January 7, 1982. The master tapes used for this project were also sub-masters from Capitol. Starting in June 1984, the rest of the Beatles LPs were released individually as the remainder of the "Original Master Recordings" series start with "Rubber Soul". One anomaly is the version of "With The Beatles" as an individual MFSL record, it is rarer than the others due to the fact that a damaged metal part for the recording ensured it had a very limited run.
