Let It Be
This would be better described as a test pressing. It appears to be the final Phil Spector produced album. I find is unusual that an acetate/test pressing would come with a finished production sleeve.
The sleeve, probably, did not come with the disc. It was likely added by a seller at a later time in order to boost the sale.
This disc was auctioned on eBay in February 2004. See the over zealous auction description below the photos.
