Oh wait, no it isn’t.
And I’ll add back my original here…
I think the first double LP was Freak Out by the Mothers Of Invention.

Interesting question, Bob Dylan’s Blonde On Blonde was released in 1966 but The Beatles released 2 double EP’s in 1964, although these may or may not count because you had to buy each disc separately. Regardless, the first double album was a live performance of Jazz musician Benny Goodman, released in 1950 by Columbia Records. Also, in 1909, The Nutcracker was recorded and released as a quadruple LP, although it ran at 78RPM and vinyl back then was different from nowadays.

What are these two double EPs from 1964 that you refer to, @Dark Overlord?

Sure, there’s a strong argument that Extracts from the Film… and Extracts from the Album A Hard Day’s Night , released two days apart (4 & 6 November), could be considered as companion pieces. Certainly not a double-EP though. To have been that they would have needed to be packaged and sold as one item.

I see no way to make a similar argument about their other two EP releases of that year: All My Loving , consisting of two tracks from With The Beatles  and two from Please Please Me  (which were also their first two b-sides), released on 7 February; Long Tall Sally , their first EP of exclusive material (ie. the first EP that wasn’t just EMI trying to find another way to flog the same songs again), recorded during the AHDN  sessions, released 19 June.

I don’t see any way to consider those two disparate collections as being connected.

I was referring to the 2 A Hard Day’s Night EP’s and Beatles For Sale volume 1 and 2, which I realize now were released in 1965, sorry about that.
