Magical Mystery Tour: The Booklet

One of the minor injustices of the initial 1987 release of Magical Mystery Tour on CD was the fact that it ignored the 24-page booklet that was bound within the gatefold of the 1967 original LP.

Am pleased to announce the booklet appears in both the stereo and mono re-mastered versions of the CD released last week. (The mono version even exactly replicates the packaging of the original album.)

I was always a fan of the booklet, and often wondered why more contemporary albums didn't include such things. Nowadays, most CDs include booklets with lyrics and pictures - but they were quite rare in the '60s and '70s.

For those of you who would like to see the booklet again, it's re-produced in its entirety here.
