|One-of-a-kind Beatles LPs discovered|

What's inside that storage carton in the back corner of your crawl space? Imagine if it was a one-of-a-kind original pressing of a Beatles record. Now imagine if there were four of them.
Akim Boldireff and Aaron Keele, known as The Record Guys across the world, uncovered these unbelievably rare records earlier this year from a former Capitol Records record-pressing plant employee, who worked for the company from the late 1970s until the mid 1980s. When his shift was over, he'd sometimes experiment, testing techniques of mixing colour and creating patterns. Thankfully, his favourite band was The Beatles.
Among the items is a breathtaking electric-blue vinyl disc with The Beatles "Revolver" side A pressed on one side and John Lennon's solo debut album "Plastic Ono Band" side B on the flipside. Another gem is a pressing of the seminal "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album done on a stunning blue marble vinyl.
There are no other copies of these anywhere in the world. They're so exceptional the experts hesitate to even place a monetary value on it.
You can also view the collection and read about it on Boldireff and Keele's website, www.therecordguys.com.
