Released in 1982, The Beatles Mono Collection is a boxed set of all Beatles' albums which were originally issued on mono LPs in the UK (Please Please Me to Yellow Submarine). EMI reportedly pressed a total of 10,000 copies of each reissue mono LP for sale individually. An unknown quantity of unnumbered red boxes (sometimes reported to be between 300 and 500) were issued in the UK, while 1000 numbered black boxed sets were assembled and issued in the United States by the Dutch East India Trading Co. These US sets included a numbered certificate and an order blank for additional sets.

Album contents[edit]

The set contains the following Parlophone Beatles LPs:

The band's last two albums Abbey Road, and Let It Be were not included as they never received a mono LP release in the UK.
