Volume I

Beatles promotional Export solo album !

This mid-1970s compilation album is the only album ever authorized by EMI that contained solo songs by all four Beatles. Manufactured under license in Korea by Oasis Record Co., it contained such solo classics as Stand By Me, Band On the Run, No No Song, and Ding Dong, Ding Dong (See complete track listing below).

The disc was manufactured in Great Britain, on the EMI label, making this an extremely rare UK export album. In addition, under the catalog number (OL 107) on the label are the words "For Broadcast Only", which seems to denote that this is a promotional copy, and perhaps even a promotional-only release! On the label is a Korean import tax sticker. On the back cover, a separate catalog number is shown for each of the songs, which appears to indicate their release as singles in Korea. It's one of the worlds rarest Beatles albums, so far only two copies have been confirmed, one of which is unopened.
