I didn't buy these but noticed them in an electronic shop in an airport in the Middle East while I was transiting. These appear to have nothing to do with Apple or the Beatles. I assume that the word Beatles is subject to some trademark protection in most of the world. I don't know the company (eKlasse) I assume it's a company local to the Gulf States and so can get away with this under the radar. Interesting if anyone else has seen these.

So what, George?  You only live once...and life is very short.  So enjoy your new vinyl LP collection.  You have the turntable to do it with!   ;)

"Following the release of The U.S. Albums, The Japan Box commemorates the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles debut in Japan. Using the 2009 remasters, The Japan Box contains the first five original Japanese LP titles, reproduced as CD's.
The titles have been out of print since 1987. Of particular interest is reproducing the album 'Beatles!', which is one of the most well-known compilation LPs in the world, and 'A Hard Day's Night', which features the Japanese original cover.
The Japan Box uses the 2009 remaster sound, with the titles 'Beatles!', 'Beatles No.2' and 'Beatles No.5' using the 2009 mono remaster. All five titles are made of paper sleeves, with reproduced obi strips and supplement posters."

Actually Barry these are CD replicas of Japanese Beatles albums released in the 60s.   However I am eagerly awaiting the Mono vinyl on September 9th!

I should have viewed your picture full-sized, George.  Now I see the Odeon logo and the different cover for A Hard Day's Night.

Does borrowing from the library count?

'Wonderwall Music' by George Harrison (my favourite Beatles solo record along with 'McCartney') as I've only got it on LP and my record player does work at the moment.
I need to return to that particular library in three weeks time, on the exact date that the loan runs out, so I'll inevitably get it out again.

It could end up being the most expensive CD ever as I already recognise dates on the label where I've taken it out before!

Even though looking at it in hindsight it's a compilation, the Japanese Meet The Beatles is very impressive. What a great album it must have been for a Japanese kid to listen to in 1964.

1. I Want To Hold Your Hand
2. She Loves You
3. From Me To You
4. Twist And Shout
5. Love Me Do
6. Baby It's You
7. Don't Bother Me
8. Please Please Me
9. I Saw Her Standing There
10. P.S. I Love You
11. Little Child
12. All My Loving
13. Hold Me Tight
14. Please Mister Postman

I quite like Wonderwall. While the pieces are too varied to be able to say I like them all, partypeople a few of the tracks find their way onto playlists of mine. I think it's an underrated effort by George. It certainly doesn't deserve to be bracketed with Electronic Sounds, Two Virgins etc as a throwaway experimental album.

I don't really buy box sets so I'll probably just make do for the time being.

I can imagine why 'Wonderwall Music' would have been baffling in 1968 but, in the context of AMM, Captain Beefheart, Ornette Coleman, Indian music and wacky 60s soundtracks, it actually makes perfect sense! Most of it is pretty mellow.

Along with the film, it's a real, yet virtually unknown, gem.
Similarly, although the soundtrack to 'More' is quite well known, has anyone ever seen the film? It's brilliant!
