Pretty sure it was LP only, and basically replaced by Past Masters on double CD.  I had the old blue-covered one when I had the Beatles boxed LP set back in the day.

Different US and UK LPs were released in their respective countries, originally the LP was meant and promoted as exclusive to the box that contained all the original UK albums but not too soon later it was available on its own – probably a good thing as it meant fans didn't have to buy all the UK albums again for 1 LP.

There is now no need for a UK cd release as it's basically a skimmed down Past Masters,  the US has a couple of alternate mixes that are still not on cd but with the mono box out there its not that much of a necessity (i think And I Love Her and Penny Lane are the two still not officially available) – however with the US albums looking like they are going to be released individually in January it might make an appearance.

As with every Beatles album ever released its widely available on bootleg.
