Memorabilia: Blue vinyl White Album

This original 'BLUE' vinyl copy of The Beatles White album has been kindly loaned to The Beatles Story. It is the only version in existence according to Christie's and Sotheby's auction houses.

During the late 1960's its owner was working for a West London record pressing plant that was printing a special order for the double LP 'The Beatles' - universally known as The White Album. At the same time the pressing plant also happened to be running Linda Rostandt's 'Blue Bayou' that was to be printed on a blue vinyl.

The owner seized the opportunity to make a unique version of the White Album for himself. He moved the White Album master copy onto the Blue Bayou press and produced one totally blue vinyl version of the White Album.

Years later he met Paul McCartney at a TV studio and took the LP along for Paul to sign.

See this and many other great items of memorabilia only at the Beatles Story, Liverpool.
