|Detail :||Following the success of the "Singles Collection" of 1976, and the "The Beatles L.P. Collection" of 1978, 1981 saw
the release of an E.P. collection. The box featured the same design as the album collection, which was of a dark blue
design (to look like denim ?) with gold embossed title, and autographs of the Fab Four.
The collection contained all of the original 12 E.P.'s in mono, the "Magical Mystery Tour" double E.P. in stereo, plus,
a bonus E.P. of rarities, which in this case were unreleased stereo versions of familiar songs.
All the E.P.'s were of the modern pressing variety, e.g. boxed EMI logo's, and the "Magical Mystery Tour" E.P. included black inner sleeves for the vinyl, whereas originally they were white.
With this final release of 1981, E.M.I. announced that just during 1981, 75,000,000 (75 Million !) Beatles units were sold.
In 1992 after CD's had become firmly established, EMI packaged their next E.P. collection, this time in C.D. format.
All of the C.D.'s were faithfully reproduced in glorious mono, with the only visible differences being, an Apple
where the EMITEX advert used to be, and bar-coding in the catalogue number area.
