Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab
Original master recording, remastered edition of the 1969 album.
Mobile Fidelity's first Beatles release.

Yellow banner at the top cover "Original Master Recording"
White Mo-Fi label has the Capitol C logo.

(NOTE: I do not have any merch at all).
Early pressings came with a posterboard fold-out insert protecting the LP. On one side is a description of Mo-Fi's background called "An Audiophile's Dream Come True!" and the other side "Superdiscs Supertapes Superstars Super Quality"

Later inserts had a photo of historical-looking figures holding up Mo-Fi LPs stating "Limited Editions From the Original Masters"

Some later copies have a posterboard 4 page b&w foldout insert: front cover reads "Original Master Recordings" at top with an image of a man's back looking at the cover of the Beatles' White Album Original Master Recording. Page 2 has "What Is An Original Master Recording?". Page 3 has a catalog of LPs and cassettes. Back cover has UHQR and Geo-Disc information.

The LP itself is translucent (hold it up to a bright light and you can see through it).

Pressed in Japan.
Recorded in England.
