The Beatles CD singles Collection

On or about November 06 1989, EMI released a box set to the world containing CD versions of the 22 original Brtish singles. The catalogue number for this set is EMI CDBSC 1.

The actual box is black in colour with "The Beatles" in gold and "CD Singles Collection" also in gold although in smaller print. There are gold coloured lines: one above the artist's name and one below the title. The sides of the box contain the same logo as the front (smaller of course) with the Capitol records logo, the Apple logo and Parlophone logo. Below the logos is the box number: C2 077 7 15901 2 2.

All of the singles have the newer photo picture sleeves made of cardboard ad the discs themselves also have the silk screen photo corresponding to the picture covers. The following singles are included:

"Love Me Do/P.S. I Love You", "Please Please Me/Ask Me Why", "From Me To You/Thank You Girl", "She Loves You/ I'll Get You", "I Want To Hold Your Hand/This Boy", "Can't Buy Me Love/ You Can't Do That", "A Hard Day's Night/ Things We Said Today", "I Feel Fine/She's A Woman", "Ticket To Ride/Yes It Is", "Help!/I'm Down", "We Can Work It Out/Day Tripper", "Paperback Writer/Rain", "Yellow Submarine/Eleanor Rigby", "Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane", "All You Need Is Love/Baby, You're a Rich Man", "Hello Goodbye/I Am The Walrus", "Lady Madonna/The Inner Light", "Hey Jude/Revolution", "Get Back/Don't Let Me Down", "The Ballad of John and Yoko/Old Brown Shoe", "Something/Come Together" and "Let It Be/ You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)".

The back of the box has a black sticker on it promoting the set and lists it's content. The songs are out of order and the sequence is back and forth. The singles are mono up until "The Ballad of John and Yoko".
