The commemorative disks of the Beatles' Japan visit:

Toshiba EMI needed to make special commemorative disks, but the idea of making an original best album ("the Best of the Beatles" OP-7177), which they once planned to release in 1965, was turned down by E. M. I. in England again and this album remained unreleased.
therefore, they had to use existing albums to promote for the 'Yeah Yeah Sale'.
At the early stage of the sale, they advertised the then new album "Rubber Soul" (released on 15th March 1966 in Japan), but later they decided to release two albums "Please Please Me" and "With The Beatles", both of which had been unreleased in Japan.
they re-named them as "STEREO! This is the Beatles Vol.1" and "Vol.2", changing song orders to put the most popular songs in Japan at the first place of every record. They made original covers, gatefold covers with photo books inside, and they emphasized that these were STEREO records (this might be an impact because stereo equipment had just become popular).
