Beatles Christmas Album Release: Limited Edition

The Beatles are legendary because they never seem to die! This season keeps them going as they release a limited edition Beatles Christmas album.

The album is a box set of vinyl records and is called The Christmas Records. It is set to release worldwide on December 15.

The famous band had sent these limited records to fans back from 1963-1969. This is how it worked:

The original holiday recordings were pressed onto flexi discs then mailed to the fan club. But it was exclusive! Normal fans could not find these records in stores but needed to be part of the elite fan club.

The current Beatles Christmas album includes seven 7″ colored vinyl singles. That’s right, vinyl. Because of their rarity and that fact that they will be shipped to you, you would pay more than purchasing the songs online. But hey, it’s a limited edition from the most famous band ever, so what would you expect? Also, the records look cool because they are all different colors.

Included along with the vinyl records is a booklet with original fan club Christmas newsletters.

It seems that just like they did in the 60’s, you would need to be a devoted fan to make this purchase and listen to the vinyls on a record player. Maybe this is strategic in bringing fans a blast from the past.
