SLEEVE INFORMATION
The first version of Rarities released in Australia was the UK version. The disc was, strictly speaking, only available to consumers in a boxed collection of original Beatles albums. However, a number of retailers across Australia, it would seem, broke up boxed sets and put Rarities on the racks for individual purchase, on account of how a good number of consumers refused to buy a boxed set containing twelve records that they either already had, or didn't want, just to get the Rarities album.

Mastered at Studios 301 utilising the Maxicut Process.
