The set, which will be available in the U.S. July 15 and commemorates the Beatles' 50th anniversary, features five Japanese Beatles albums as they were originally issued from 1964 to 1965. The release of the albums in their exact form as they were originally released in Japan parallels “The U.S. Albums” box set that was released in America late last year.

Each CD will include reproductions of the original albums' covers, as did the Beatles' “U.S. Albums” set. The albums will also be compiled from the 2009 remasters, as the American box set was, with the exception of "Help!," which will have the original '60s stereo mix.

The five albums included in the set are “Meet The Beatles,” “The Beatles Second Album,” “A Hard Day's Night,” “Help!” and “The Beatles No. 5.” A 100-page Japanese booklet will also included.

Each disc will feature either stereo or mono sound. “Meet the Beatles,” “The Beatles No. 2 (Second Album)” and “The Beatles No. 5” will be in mono, while “A Hard Day's Night” and "Help!" will be in stereo. The track lists of the albums are unique to Japan.

The track lists for each CD: CD 1: “Meet the Beatles!”: “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “She Loves You,” “From Me to You,” “Twist and Shout,” “Love Me Do,” “Baby, It’s You,” “Don’t Bother Me,” “Please Please Me,” “I Saw Her Standing There,” “P.S. I Love You,” “Little Child,” “All My Loving,” “Hold Me Tight,” “Please Mr. Postman.”

CD 3: “A Hard Day’s Night”: “A Hard Day’s Night,” “I Should Have Known Better,” “If I Fell,” “I’m Happy Just to Dance with You,” “And I Love Her,” “Tell Me Why,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Any Time at All,” “I’ll Cry Instead,” “Things We Said Today,” “When I Get Home,” “You Can’t Do That,” “I’ll Be Back.”
