Default Help - Looking for a Vinyl Compilation as a present

Hi there.

I'm so glad I found this forum and it is great to be here! So over the past few days I was lurking around and finally decided to register.

First off, this is not about me. It's about my father-in-law. He is a big fan of the Beatles. So please bear that in mind.

Anyway, next month he will turn 55 and there will be a huge celebration. Due to the fact he is such a Beatles fan, I - or better me and my wife thought about getting him something Beatles related. I know he is a big fan of old Vinyl Records. He always says they sound much better.

So we came up with the idea of getting him some nice, old Beatles Vinyl Records. I already did some research online and checked out some websites classified adds, but I simply don't know which one to pick. There are so many for sale. And I also don't know about the quality. How can I tell it is good or not? Especially if you buy a used record.

And furthermore, I think it's hard to pick one specific album. So I was thinking about a compilation. There are also plenty available. I personally know about the No 1 and the Anthology. I guess they are available on Vinyl as well.

Do you guys here think this is a good idea? Any advice for a nice compilation? There's still plenty of time left.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Vincent.

If you're going to buy just one LP, I would go with the remastered '1' collection. Can't get any better as far as quality. It's not some old vintage LP, it was just released in 2015.
