Review by: Jim Coburn, jcgolf44@aol.comOn 21 Apr 2000
When this first came out it was the difinitive Christmas collection. It has since been surpassed by Vigotone's version, which also happens to be speed corrected. Still this is a worthy addition to any Beatles Collection.

i got a different version : YD031 with a yellow / b/w photo sleeve dating back to 1992!
Review by: grandegiOn 12 Dec 2004 at 19:46 CEST
Quality seems to be little better than the Odeon release. The Ultimate Vigotone version is better for completist but hard to find.
