“Each of the CDs is packaged with replicated original U.K. album art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. On the same date, two new Beatles boxed CD collections will also be released,” according to MTV News staff.
The catalog consists of 12 albums, along with the U.S. version of the Magical Mystery Tour LP and the combination of Past Masters Vol. I and II.
