The 'Lost' Cassette 3-Pack

Back in 1969 Capitol planned on releasing this little item. Cassettes had been around for a year or so, and this was probably an attempt to promote them. An 8-track version was planned as well.
Somebody objected and it never was released, but a dozen or so copies are known to exist.
The selection of albums is smart. It covers three distinct periods and provides a lot of good stuff:
Meet the Beatles (their hugely popular 'first' LP ), and two albums that are chock full of hits; 'Yesterday'...and Today and Magical Mystery Tour.
The cover is a weird choice, though. It looks like you're buying the White Album.
