In the late 1970s Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MFSL) made a name for themselves by cutting classic albums at half-speed. This new mastering technology produced high quality lacquers that captured every little nuance of sound and improved stereo separation.

The first three Beatles’ album to receive the MFSL treatment were ‘Abbey Road’, ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ and ‘The White Album’. The remaining nine albums were all released simultaneously in the ‘The Beatles/The Collection’ box-set.
