    Description

    The Beatles ("The White Album") Numbered US Pressing #0000029 (Apple SWBO 101, 1968). With the cover stamped "0000029", this is the lowest-numbered non-prefix US pressing of the Beatles' self-titled "White Album" we've ever encountered. From Bruce Spizer, noted Beatles historian: "Although some mysteries surrounding the numbering of The White Album covers remain, there are certain things well established. As one would expect, low numbered covers are worth a hefty premium, and you really can't get much lower than 'A 0000004.' An early batch of albums, specifically those numbered 'A 0000001 to A 0000025' was sent to Capitol Records president Stan Gortikov in mid-November 1968. Gortikov sent this box to George Harrison at Apple's Saville Row headquarters. He told George that he was sending 'those copies of the new U.S. Beatles album that are serially numbered 'A 0000001 to A 0000025' as personal souvenirs for you and selected friends." So here is a copy that was just four numbers after the magic box that was sent to the Beatles back in 1968. Included here are the album's four original photos and poster in Very Good condition. Condition: EX-7 (sleeve) / VG-5 (disc).
