Made in Australia by E.M.I. (Australia) Limited

In February of 1973, ten years and three years after, respectively, the release of the Beatles' first and last albums, a group of affiliated radio stations across Australia sponsored the release of an LP which packaged together the previously released compilations, Greatest Hits Volume 1 & Greatest Hits Volume 2 as, The Beatles Greatest Hits Volumes One And Two (The Beatles' Australian 10th Anniversary 1963-1973). The vinyl was housed in a custom gatefold sleeve, to which was attached a gold sticker bearing the name of the radio station which was promoting the album in a particular Australian State or Territory. While there was no new content, or new mixes of old content, on the album, the labels eschewed the orange hue that characterised contemporary Beatles releases in favour of a more subdued lilac/purple colour; not a particularly earth-shattering variation perhaps but one which undeniably adds to the unique character of the Australian Beatles labelography. The album was available for only two or so months.

The stations involved were:

Sydney - 2UE
Newcastle - 2KO
Melbourne - 3DB
Brisbane - 4BK
Adelaide - 5AD
Perth - 6PR
Hobart - 7HT
Launceston - 7EX
