An Unusual Beatles “1” CD

We were at a record fair the other day and picked up The Beatles 1 compilation CD from 2000. The front cover looks familiar:Beatle 1 Not EU 1

As does the rear:Beatle 1 Not EU 2

That is, until you look more closely at the fine print – just below the barcode:

Beatle 1 Not EU 4

There it says quite clearly, in bolded letters, “Not resale in the EU“. Never seen that before. Then there’s the disc itself:Beatle 1 Not EU 3

Looks rather standard, but it too has the words “Not resale in the EU. LC 0299” in the small print around the perimeter:

Beatle 1 Not EU 3-1

Anyone seen this one before, or know what it means?
