Congrats to Jeff E. of The Colony, Texas, for winning our last giveaway -- a $500 gift certificate to Rakuten.com Shopping. At the end of the long and winding road that leads to this week's prize, you'll find "The U.S. Albums," a 13-CD Beatles collection spanning 1964's "Meet The Beatles!" to 1970's "Hey Jude." The collection came out earlier this year to mark the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four's arrival on American soil.
That milestone happened on February 7, 1964, when scores of swooning fans greeted The Beatles as they arrived at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport. Two nights later, 74 million viewers in the US and millions more in Canada tuned in to watch John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr make their American television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
"The U.S. Albums" come in a boxed set with faithfully replicated original LP artwork, including the albums' inner sleeves. The 13 CDs also come with a 64-page booklet containing vintage Beatles photos and promotional art.
