Default Magical Mystery Tour vinyl album question

My dad has a MMT album that his late sister gave to him for Christmas years ago. I don't know what year he got it. He's not selling it, because of the sentimental value, but I have a question about it.
The record itself is yellow. I have never seen or heard about any other yellow-colored vinyl MMT records, so I was wondering if anyone would have any information about if they are rare (which I think they are) and how much it's worth. I'm just curious!

Default re: MMT question

Yes, it's rare, but not as rare as you'd think.
I have one.
I'm not sure of the value, but I often refer to eBay to see what market values look like.
You might try that. My wild guess is that it's probably worth about forty or fifty dollars.

I really don't know the value of it, but the yellow vinyl version was pressed in the UK in 1978 as an album for export only, although some may have ended up in UK shops.

The yellow vinyl MMT albums were a UK export and should have the 'Made in Gt. Britain' credit at the far end of the rimtext. It should be on the Parlophone label, catalogue number PCTC 255. It was released in 1976.

Two other coloured vinyl albums were also in the series. They had a white LIB and a yellow AR I think.

As for value, the yellow vinyl export copies of Magical Mystery Tour are pretty hard to find and have an approximate value of (in top condition) around £50-60 / $90-100.

Hope this helps!

Sweet! Thanks for the info! I just told my dad and he's excited!
And, I asked him, "You're not going to sell it, right?" and he said "No, because Aunt Betsy (his late sister) gave it to me." Right on!!
I didn't know about the LIB or AR ones, though!

It was actually released in 1979. There were four Beatles albums released on colored vinyl. The Beatles (PCS 7067-8) and Let It Be (PCS 7096) on white vinyl, Abbey Road (PCS 7088) on green vinyl and Magical Mystery Tour (PCTC 255) on yellow vinyl.

They were all released in limited editions in Britain without any advertising.

Default Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour

Parlophone/EMI PCTC 255 Yellow Vinyl was released in 1976 & '78. It was in Limited supply which makes it worth more than the reissue in 2012 on the Apple Label. I paid around $70.00 for a Mint copy in 2009. It would bring over $100.00 today

Exclamation 2012 set will drop in value, especially since the 2014 mono set is out

All older "Rare" albums will always hold their value over the 2012 albums. These will drop even further in value once Apple re-releases the 2012 stereo set in Analog, like they did with the new 2014 mono set.

Especially since the 2012 stereo set is mass produced, not limited.
