Special Beatles stamps

LONDON:

The Beatles’ top albums are to appear on a set of stamps early next year, said Britain’s Royal Mail. The six stamps will feature images of the band’s most famous album covers, the postal agency said on September 12. The collection, which goes on sale in January, includes Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Abbey Road, Revolver, Let It Be and With The Beatles. “The Beatles special stamps promise to be a big hit with fans the world over when they go on sale in January 2007,” a Royal Mail spokesman said. Royal Mail was featuring some of the first class Beatles album covers to “commemorate the UK band that stands for all that’s great in popular culture”.
