Chu-Bops Bubble Gum Beatles Miniature Album Collection
Between 1981 and 1983, Chu-Bops produced 9 different series of 3" X 3" grooved bubble gum records housed in replica LP sleeves with a song lyric on the back. Each LP sold for 35 cents apiece. Series six featured Elvis Presley, series nine The Rolling Stones, and series eight covered 16 Beatles albums on the Capitol (and AHDN soundtrack on United Artists) label. Presented here are scans from my collection (thanks, Jeff) of ten different Beatles mini albums, still sealed. Looks like the White Album suffers the same fate as its vinyl counterpart - ring wear!
