COMMENTS
EMI UK issued picture disc singles – released between October 4, 1982 and March 5, 1990 – as part of the lengthy 20th anniversary re-release project.

The 20th anniversary set were issued independently as limited editions. They were re-released approximately 20 years after the original 1960fs releases. The artwork on these picture disc singles mirrors the artwork in the Blue Box Singles set on all but 2 singles. For whatever reason, All you need is love and Hey Jude were redesigned before becoming picture discs.

These discs were re-cut especially for this set directly from the best tape sources possible. In some cases, directly from the original album masters.
Each disc is housed in a clear PVC wallet. The final 6 discs come complete with their original and correct backing cards.
*Some reissue discs come with a backing card.

  • Love Me Do / P.S. I Love You (Parlophone/October 4, 1982)
