Love Songs was a two LP set released on October 21st, 1977 in the US and on November 19th, 1977 in the UK, just in time for the Christmas shopping season. The theme of this collection is (obviously) various love songs recorded by the group during their career. The only thing new on this title is a new mix of “Girl.” Also two songs “Yes It Is” and “This Boy” appear on an LP in stereo for the first time. The transfer is excellent and flawless and appeals to the Beatle completist.
N.B. Although called Dr. Ebbett, these releases are silver pressed and only appropriate the name of the well known audiophile needle-drop CDR label. In fact they have nothing to do with the real Dr. Ebbett. However, it is good to have these releases on silver pressed commercially produced titles to make this elitist label available to all.If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)
