Box Set Five Star,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Magical Mystery Tour (Box Set) [Blu-ray & DVD]  (Blu-ray)
Now that I own the MMT box set I feel free to review it!!
The DVD is great with true extras (unlike Help!) and the restored quality is good. Paul's 'commentary' is ok once, but the other extras are fun.
Packaging is great but the double EP from 1967 is not quite right..
It is a gatefold, a bit smaller and in US (color).
The originals were larger with the discs sort of inside.

The EP: I agree about the colo(u)or which is not quite right. The disc inserts are wrong..they were sort of half cut off and the discs went in the top. The printing on the discs themselves doesn't look right. The paper for the lyric insert is too glossy..it was softer, more sugar papery. (I could go in the loft and check my original copy, but I'm getting too old!).
It does have that great new record laminate smell though.

No need to go to the loft. You are correct. The thing is the blurb said it was a replica which it isn't. However I am very pleased with the set - just nit picking. Why can't they get things right?
